NASA and littleBits Team up for “Space Kit” Snap-Together Circuit Board Module Set

You know you want to build your own rover.

We love the magnetic snap-together circuit-building toy littleBits, and today we love them even more. They’ve partnered with NASA for a Space Kit version that includes lesson plans specially designed by NASA for the budding little space geek. (Or for the childish, space-obsessed blogger.)

The Space Kit has 12 littleBits modules including sensors, a speaker, and a remote trigger that can be used to build 10 different projects like the rover pictured above or a model International Space Station. There are also five of the NASA-designed lesson plans to teach electromagnetism, kinetic and potential energy, and more.

This launch video for the kit has us pretty excited:

The littleBits Space Kit is available for $189 on their site. It’s a little pricey for a toy, but just keep telling yourself it’s educational to justify the expense.
