A Littlebits Challenge

This summer I received a Littlebits starter kit with the premise of messing around with it.  Well, we I got it I knew I had to get it into the hands of the students, who else would have the most fun just messing around.  So today as a way to get the kids thinking about variables and team work, I presented them with the Littlebits challenge.

We only have 1 kit available to the class, so they took turns figuring out the components and then dreaming up something they could build using them.  Next Friday, they will share their ideas with the class and we will vote on our two favorites.  We will then try to build as many of them as we can.  There are not a lot of rules, they have to use some of the components and they may bring in whichever material they would like.  I cannot wait to see their creations come to life.
