  • Purchase one kit per RVR and allow your groups to combine both programming with engineering design principles
  • Utilize RVRs onboard power source to power your littleBits invention and make it mobile with RVRs all terrain treads
  • Program RVRs IR sensors to interact with the littleBits IR remote trigger to create mazes, gates and other inventions
  • Connect littleBits’ newest bit - micro:bit adapter to program both littleBits and RVR in the same platform - Microsoft MakeCode or micro:bit python editor
  • Promotes collaboration - assign one group the programming and another engineering and see what the can create together
