Middle school 5th - 8th graders here at Westford School meet twice weekly working with LittleBits electronic circuitry projects.
LittleBits is a user-friendly platform "guiding" students to electronic circuit combinations that build inventions. This is accomplished by magnetizing edges of circuits when the combination is "correct." Designs that do not work repel at connection points.
The invention/inquiry process is fostered in these classes. Engineers can create pre-designed machines or work with their own ideas in design and construction.
Now in its third year, LittleBits engineering classes are generously funded by the Westford PTO group.
Mr. Sherman and Mr. CichoskiKelly guide in this project.
Products created by engineers can be seen in the main lobby display case between Wednesdays through Fridays every week. Stop by and see what's up!
