Snap your ideas to life.

 

LittleBits are kits of electronic “bits” that you can attach together to build machines, games, robotic creatures and more. They’re a safe, easy way to learn circuitry, electronics and engineering as well as to build your skills in physics, art and design thinking.

What can I use littleBits for?

You can use littleBits to build inventions of all kinds! They come in kits of different electronic parts that you can easily snap together to form something new. Each piece changes the function of your creation just a little bit (heh), so the more you build, the more unique your invention becomes. Follow along with a video tutorial to test out different invention ideas, or start combining things to see what you can come up with on your own.

How do I start using littleBits?

Just stop by the Racine Public Library during the Innovation Lab’s open hours or other programs. Come find a digital services team member, and we can help you get started.

Who can use littleBits?

We recommend these kits for ages 14 and up, but we encourage anyone who’s interested to try them out.

How else can I learn engineering at the Racine Public Library?

There’s plenty of other ways we can help you explore engineering, electronics and other STEAM Skills.

 

In the Innovation Lab

 

Want to try more tech out in the Innovation Lab? Our collection of robots are another fun option.

 

In the Comfort of Your Home

 

Want to learn and practice at home? For more hands-on learning, explore the “STEM” section of our Beyond Books Collection. If you prefer to learn by reading, try the engineering books in our physical catalog or among our digital titles in Wisconsin’s Digital Library or hoopla.
