STEAM Classroom Kit with micro:bit – Bundle

Bundle Includes:

STEAM School Kit – our most massive building set providing over 4000 pieces enough for an entire classroom of students. The building set comes with 5 different precut straw sizes and 4 color-coded connectors for scaling project sizes from miniature to building structures taller than you. This kit arrives as a storage box with pull-out material trays to get started building. Comes with the Pocketful of Ideas card deck with 100+ challenges to stay inspired.

Both 2 × micro:bit V2 club – 10 Pack  and 2 × Robotic Inventions for micro:bit – 10 Pack kits – the micro:bit joins forces with the Robotic Inventions board for adding robotic capabilities. The Robotics board includes 2 RGB LEDs and attach up to 3 servo motors to any Strawbees building project.

Write in Microsoft MakeCode’s block-based programming platform, upload a program, and remove from the computer to run on batteries.

This bundle is for who want to include micro:bits. A bundle without micro:bits is available.

Key Features

Play and Program Hardware – using the micro:bit each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer and Bluetooth Smart Technology.

Full STEAM Ahead – everything you need for a well-rounded science, technology, engineering, art and math experience of making and creating your projects.

Build creative thinking skills and invent anything you can imagine.

Storage Solution – organized trays by piece and color ready to be placed out on the table for a lesson or workshop setting and easy to material management system.

Unlimited building – large amount of material to build structures of any scale or dimension, big enough to fit many makers inside and lightweight enough to lift above your head.

Different lengths & color-coded pieces – there are 4 types of connectors and 5 different cut straw lengths cut all color-coded making it easy to follow the activity instructions.

Make physical and mechanical inventions with the micro:bit.

Physical Computing – extend programming to the physical world beyond the computer screen with creating interactive projects with the Strawbees building system.

Electronic Building Set – all electronics easily connect to Strawbees connectors and straws.

All materials are custom-made, durable, and reusable – finish building, disassemble, and begin a new project.
