NEW PRODUCT – littleBits Space Kit: A collaboration between littleBits and NASA, the littleBits Space Kit is an easy-to-use and infinitely customizable kit designed for doing space themed science investigations from your very own home!

This kit is perfect for anyone who’s ever wondered how satellite orbits or space station transmissions or the inverse-square law works. It’s great for teachers, students, and space enthusiasts of all ages. With 12 modules, 5 lessons, 10 projects, custom accessories, and a 30+ page project booklet, there’s a wealth of possibilities for the space-obsessed. And all of it has been designed by NASA scientists and engineers to give you an authentic, boundary pushing technological experience.

There are over one million possible circuit combinations so there’s almost no limit on your exploration. Sample project ideas include making your own International Space Station to learn how the ISS wirelessly transmits data down to earth and a satellite project that uses a DC motor to create a working model of a satellite in orbit. Each of these takes a couple hours to put together and are just a few examples of what the kit has to offer.

For more examples of projects, check out the LittleBits Space Kit projects page or their Space Kit YouTube page.

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
