Light Spinner Kit
Students learn about light emitting diodes (LED), magnetism and electric motors while creating a mini light show. Students will build a very simple electric motor and use it to spin colored LEDs. The LED colors can be changed to vary the affect.
Grabbing Device Kit
Students use their skills in cutting and fabricating and their knowledge of structures and fluids to design and construct a fluid powered device that can be used to pick up objects.
Little Bits Synth Kit
Create amazing sounds right out of the box while learning the basics of analog synthesis. Includes a project booklet with step-by-step instructions for creating a wide array of sound circuits and projects, and the box transforms into a ready-to-use performance station that can connect to recording or live sound equipment.
Electric Motor Kit
Students learn about the operation and parts of an electric motor while they construct a simple operating electric motor.
Electrical Circuits Kit
Complete set of materials and instructions to construct a series of electrical circuits. The kit includes batteries, bulbs, buzzers wires and switches. This kit supports 30 students with students working in pairs. Incorporates skills in electricity, control systems, working from diagrams. Suggested time requirement 4-6 hours.
Complete set of materials and instructions to construct a hydraulically operated 2 axis robot arm. These robots can be used to facilitate a classroom "wrestling robot" competition. This kit supports 30 students with students working in pairs. Incorporates skills in geometry, structures, control systems. Suggested time requirement 4-6 hours.
Electronics with "LittleBits" Kit
This kit supports 30 students with students working in pairs. Students can explore the field of electronics by designing and building their own electronics circuits using "LittleBits" components. Incorporates skills in creativity, energy conversion, control systems, electricity. Suggested time requirement 2 hours.
Students use their skills in cutting and fabricating and their knowledge of structures to construct a wooden easel.
Elastic Powered Car Kit
