littleBits in collaboration with NASA

To promote student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM), littleBits and NASA have partnered on activities around the fundamentals of energy, robotics, wireless data transmission, physics, astronomy and more STEAM topics. Explorers can now learn how scientists communicate with a spacecraft billions of kilometers away, transmit electromagnetic energy, see sound energy and explore first-hand how the AURA satellite senses gases in our atmosphere – plus hundreds more lessons and projects available for free at littleBits website.

What’s in the kit?

12 modules that give you everything you need to conduct powerful scientific experiments: DC motor, Light sensor, Powers (2), Wires (2), Bright LED, Microphone, IR LED, Number, Remote Trigger, Speaker. Also includes, 9-volt battery+cable, motormate, screwdriver and 30 page booklet.

Why Space?

Scientists have been exploring the earth and space science from as early as 4900 B. C. From ancient Egyptians, to Galileo, to Neil deGrasse Tyson, the secrets of the cosmos have kept us wondering, observing and learning. The littleBits Space Kit will enable anyone to build their own space investigations with little to no engineering knowledge.

Featured Module: Number

The number module displays information about the signal it’s receiving from your other modules. It has two modes: in “value” mode, it displays a number from 0 to 99 on its LED display, where 0 is totally off, and 99 is all the way on. In “volts” mode, it displays the actual voltage on the signal pin, from 0.0 to 5.0 volts. It takes the same signal it receives and sends it out to the next module.

Satellite Orbit Lesson

Featured Lesson: Satellite Orbit

When a satellite looks down on the Earth from space, it only sees a small part of the surface at a time during each orbit. But after many orbits, it eventually sees all of the surface so that a full map can be put together.

Satellite Dish Lesson

Featured Lesson: Satellite Dish

A very beautiful property of parabolas is that at a point called the focus, all of the lines entering the parabola parallel to its axis are ‘reflected’ from the parabolic curve and intersect the focus. This property is used by astronomers to design telescopes, and by radio engineers to design satellite dishes.

Featured Project: Data Communication

Learn how to wirelessly transmit music using a digital signal. How does it work? Your digitized music is fed through the microphone and converted into a series of light wave pulses. The pulses are decoded by the light sensor and converted into sound waves by the speaker. NASA uses electromagnetic waves to communicate with satellites orbiting Earth.
