Been a long time
I've started an after–school program, purely based on LittleBits, to elementary kids (K to 2 for now),
and am using a set of 20 Starter and Extended kits (plus some other bits) that a previous teacher had used for about a year.
I went through all the sets one by one and tested just the following bits, and here's the number of failed bits (out of 20 each):
– p1 Power x4
– i6 Dimmer x2
– i2 Toggle switch x1
– o6 buzzer x1
– o1 led x2
– o9 bargraph x2
The following bits had zero issues in all the 20 sets:
– i3 button
– i16 pulse
I haven't tested any of the other bits yet, which I'll do before introducing them to the class.
If anyone is in urgent need of testing any of these remaining bits plz ping me and I will report back:
wire, branch, motion trigger, sound trigger, light trigger, light sensor, long led, roller switch, o5 DC motor, wires.
I'm feeling hopeful after reading the responses from LittleBits support on this thread. I'll contact them about these failed bits and see what happens
That first class was a lot of work, but seeing even KG students start to "Get it!" even though they can't write properly is an amazing feeling. Looking forward to the next 7 weekly sessions in our 8 week long after school program
