Welcome to littleBits forums! Please introduce yourself :)

Hi Gang! I am new to LittleBits with my son. We have the Space Rover Inventor kit and its totally cool. Question that I could not locate in the forum… my Android bluetooth will not connect to the rover. The connection shows “rejected”. My Droid is version 7.0 (I just checked). Any thoughts on what may be going wrong? Thanks!

Hello,

I am techie dad - do software for a living. Got a load of littlebits kits to play/learn with my daughter including The Avengers kit, the space rover, music and a number of the hall of fame kits. Before I start to make projects with my daughter, I wanted to test out the capabilities of the system myself. I’m very impressed … just one niggle and it might be my error. In the avengers app, it seems I can go into a scratch like environment and program code onto the BLE bit. This seemed amazing except there was no way to have a variable in the app. I tried Android and iOS … both versions of the app don’t support variable (as far as I can tell). Am I missing something obvious?? Thanks!!

Hi My name is Karen Fasino. I use Little Bits with 6th grade G&T students. Admittedly, these kiddos are much smarter than me especially when it comes to coding. A few students are having trouble uploading their code and were wondering if they have TOO much code to upload! Please advise.
Thanks!!

could this help ?

Hi! I’m Gena. I only started working with littleBits about two weeks ago when I being a TA for a computer science camp over this summer. We work mostly with students in elementary and middle school.
I’m a junior in high school, and I’m looking to go into computer science or cyber security. Honestly, wherever my hobbies take me at this point.

Hi there! that sounds really cool.

Hi all

I’m Alex Xavier, I’m a food scientist working for an MNC called Kancor Mane, and I work in the global spice extraction department specializing in Ajowan extract. I wish I could get take and give some insights in this forum.
I’m happy to interact here.

Thanks

Welcome Gena, thanks for connecting with us and sharing your interest in computer science. I hope you had a great TA experience. Did the camp use littleBits?

Hi all

I am wondering if anyone has any ideas to do the following? This is my first project working with Arduino and I need help!
I am using a 4 wire stepper motor (Nema 17 stepper motor 1.7 A).

My goal is to have a stepper be controlled by a button, I would like it so when you press the button it tells the stepper to move a certain amount of rotations.

If anyone can help that would be amazing!
