Coding and super powers? Sounds like a great fit for my family, so we attended a demo session to see the kit in action.
Note: I was invited as media to this event. However, any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.
First we learned how the Avengers Hero Inventor Kit works. We learned about the different bits and how they go together so kids can build using littleBits’ electronic building blocks.
Kids can build the high-tech hero gauntlet with wearable tech sensors, a customizable LED matrix light design, and authentic Marvel Avengers sound effects.
Then we learned about the different ways you can customize your high-tech gauntlet. While the kit itself comes with stickers, etc, kids can totally build their own unique designs and covers. We saw examples that included a cover made from an egg carton.
After learning about the bits and pieces, we got a first look at the free companion app for The Avengers Hero Inventor Kit.
With 18+ in-app activities, kids can control their Super Hero gear with their smart device, give it new abilities with in-app block coding, and use their STEAM skills to customize their Super Hero identity.
Learn How to Build and Code Your Own Super Powers With the Avengers!
Marvel Avengers including Iron Man, The Hulk, Black Widow, Black Panther, and Shuri, guide kids through “hero training” in the Avengers Hero Inventor app, which includes step-by-step instructions and video tutorials for more than 18 in-app activities.
By completing activities around light, speed, stealth, sound, coding, and unique hero identity, kids unleash their creativity and imagine their own invention super powers.
So if your family are fans of Marvel's The Avengers or just love technology, then check out littleBits Avengers Hero Inventor Kit (SRP:$149.99 USD) on Amazon.com, in Disney Stores, and at littleBits.com.
