Mr. Robinson’s students got a chance to be inventors with Little Bits kits. They read a book about Benjamin Franklin and his inventions. They watched a video about drag racing and then were challenged to try to “invent” the drag race starter light with their “Little Bits” circuits. The students explored the circuits to discover how they used magnets to connect and how the circuits were color coded to produce specific actions. After experimenting, they were able to “invent” a starter light for a drag race that would direct individual rows of lights come on as the students manipulated a dial.
