These are littleBits.
They’re fun electronic modules that invite kids to get creative while learning. Like Lego, littleBits are small, simple, intuitive blocks that snap together with tiny magnets.

But it’s more than just building cool inventions. It’s about inventing with a purpose and that’s where Design Thinking comes in. Design Thinking is a problem solving technique that tackles how we face issues by thinking from the perspective of others. By encouraging kids to invent for the people around them, we hope to inspire them to grow up and become more empathetic people.
After all, isn’t that the key to making the world a better place?
