    Closer Look

    Bundle Includes:

    STEAM Starter kit – is a personal-sized building set with 230 pieces to build several small towers, moving mechanical cranes, and arms. The building set comes with 5 different precut straw sizes and 4 color-coded connectors organized in the box. Includes an instructional booklet with 11 activities and 10 challenges from the Pocketful of Ideas plus a colorful introductory poster!

    Both the micro:bit Go and Robotic Inventions for micro:bit – the micro:bit joins forces with the Robotic Inventions board for adding robotic capabilities. The Robotics board includes 2 RGB LEDs and attaches up to 3 servo motors to any Strawbees building project.

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

     

    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.

    Play = Learning – extend learning at home for young makers and build creative thinking skills to invent anything you can imagine.

    Self-Oriented Learning – an introduction for teachers, librarians, and STEM educators to follow along on Strawbees Learning platform and professional development experiences.

    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.
