This year I want to implement littleBits electronic learning blocks in my classroom so my students are able to develop their creative confidence and curiosity. With littleBits my students will be able to use the color coded building blocks to create and test inventions both big and small. This way they can use both their hands and brains to solve real world problems when their isn’t a clear solution. I want to emphasize to my students that they don’t have to be just consumers of technology, they can also be inventors.

littleBits are comprised of 60 different color-coded modules that can be connected to make over a million different electronic combinations. Students are able to use different combinations buzzers, switches, lights, wheels and more to create anything that they put their mind to.

This is where you come in! With every generous donation that is made littleBits will be one step closer to my students’ hands.

Here is the breakdown in cost for fundraising for littleBits

  • Gizmos & Gadgets, 2nd Edition (x1) - $189.95
  • Preferred Partner Program - $22.40
  • PledgeCents Platform Fee - $11.20
  • Total - $224.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar)

If we do not meet our goal...

I will purchase as many Bits as possible for my classroom so my students are able to experience these wonderful kits.

PK-5th grade Teacher-Librarian, Spring Branch Education Foundation

I am blessed to be a PreK-5th grade librarian to some of the best students in Texas. Although they live in neighborhoods that are catorgerized as high poverty, they show up to school each day eager to learn and explore new concepts. Their inquisitive natures inspire me to find new and innovative ways to meet their needs, and help them strengthen their academic, leadership and problem solving skills.
