Snap The Gap STEM Inventor Kit [Base]
KIT OVERVIEW (Watch video!)
This introductory kit includes everything kids need to turn their ideas into inventions. With a range of Bits that move, light up, and make noise, kids gain STEAM skills by learning how technology is built and how it works.
With this kit you can build fun, electronic inventions, like a robotic gripper arm, a trash chomper, or a Navigator to help maneuver in the dark! Learn STEAM skills and get inspired by real-world changemakers
With your mentee, follow the steps in the instruction booklet to build your first littleBits circuit. Make sure to turn the power on!
There are two ways to access more build instructions for the inventions in the Kit:
Girls enter their unique Snap The Gap code at diy.com/redeem to get a free year-long subscription to all the courses on DIY.org (previously JAM.com). *Note: Girls will need a parent present in order to do this
During sessions, if your mentee does not have their login information for DIY.org (previously JAM.com), we will provide the video instructions through the mentor portal at snapthegap.org
The Snap The Gap STEM Kit comes with paper templates and stickers that your mentee will use to create structure from some of her inventions.
These are important! Makes sure not to lose any of these parts.
Bits are electronic building blocks that create the interactions within an invention. The Snap The Gap STEM Kit comes with 9 Bits.
Check out the Snap The Gap STEM Kit Bit Index for detailed information about each Bit in your kit.
Accessories work together with Bits to create structure and bring inventions to life
