bitWars for Grades 1-3


Are you ready for the greatest galactic geekout of all time? Invent your own droid, design your own ship, or put your own spin on a lightsaber, then recreate your favorite Star Wars scene. Use littleBits electronic circuitry kits to do it all!

bitWarriors will:

CREATE: Brainstorm invention they will. Prototype they must.

BitWarriors will start by choosing their favorite Star Wars character. Then they'll design and prototype a gadget for them or prototype the character themselves.  

TEST: bitWarriors will test their inventions with other BitWarriors in the class.

REFINE: bitWarriors will use the feedback they get from one another to refine their invention and make it even better.

SHARE: We'll help bitWarriors make a video to share their masterpiece.

For young designers presently in grades 1-3

bitWarriors will:

  • Develop collaborative skills by working in small groups.

  • Solve problems using the design process.
  • Practice skills of brainstorming
  • Use empathy to understand the problems that others face
  • Test their inventions with other people and learn from the feedback they receive
  • Learn the basics of electronic circuitry
  • Film a short movie using digital media tools.

$40 / $35 for MODA members

*Young designers will be using MODA’s littleBits to build. If you want to continue this learning at home, we’re happy to make recommendations about appropriate littleBits sets that can be purchased for home use.*

**littleBits are color-coded electronic circuitry kits that snap together with magnets. littleBits circuitry kits empower students to engineer real world solutions through invention, to kickstart their creativity, and to develop creative confidence through STEAM learning. Our littleBits classes meet Next Generation Engineering Design Standards and Common Core standards.
