These are littleBits.

littleBits x Design Thinking Torchlight - Saturday Kids

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

Within every kid lies an inner little inventor. With the power to build from imagination, kids gain creative confidence and curiosity to build awesome inventions like this:


It's no wonder littleBits has taken the world by storm, winning multiple awards.

littleBits Awards

But it’s more than just understanding how electronics work & 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 users. 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?

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.

Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. My child is new to electronics and design thinking. Will he / she be able to follow?

The littleBits Electronics and Design Thinking course is an introductory course, so no need to worry about that, we'll make sure that all students are following as we progress through the class.

2. I've enrolled my child, what will he/she need to bring?

We’ll provide all equipment and materials, but you may want to bring a jacket and light snacks in case he/she gets hungry. If your child is joining the full day camp, we recommend bringing packed lunches.

Absolutely. The course fee includes a set of littleBits modules which your child can bring home.
