Strawbees STEAM Classroom Microbit Bundle has everything you need for a well-rounded science, technology, engineering, art, and math experience in making and creating your projects.
Strawbees STEAM Classroom Microbit bundle is true play and program hardware. It serves up to 30 students. Using the micro:bit, each of its LEDs can be individually programmed as can its buttons, inputs and outputs, accelerometer, magnetometer, and Bluetooth Smart Technology. This kit allows students to build creative thinking skills and invent anything that they can imagine.
A classroom set of toolboxes for up to 30 students, using the Robotics board to add robotic capabilities to Strawbees projects and the micro: bit.

This bundle includes:
4560 pieces in total
STEAM School Kit – our most massive building set providing over 4000 pieces enough for an entire classroom of students. The building set comes with 5 different precut straw sizes and 4 color-coded connectors for scaling project sizes from miniature to building structures taller than you. This kit arrives as a storage box with pull-out material trays to get started building. Comes with the Pocketful of Ideas card deck with 100+ challenges to stay inspired.
Both 2 × micro:bit V2 club – 10 Pack and 2 × Robotic Inventions for micro:bit – 10 Pack kits – the micro:bit joins forces with the Robotic Inventions board for adding robotic capabilities. The Robotics board includes 2 RGB LEDs and attaches up to 3 servo motors to any Strawbees building project.
The ability to write in Microsoft MakeCode’s block-based programming platform, upload a program, and remove it from the computer to run on batteries.

A bundle without micro: bits is also available.
This kit makes physical and mechanical inventions come to life with the micro:bit. Physical Computing and computational thinking extend programming to the physical world beyond the computer screen by allowing students to create interactive projects with the Strawbees building system.
All materials are custom-made, durable, and reusable. When students finish building they can disassemble and begin a new project.
The lesson plans that Strawbees has available on their platform make this product one of our TOP PICKS! This company took the basic teacher tools to the next level. Their lessons match Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), Common Core, and United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) (and more coming!) for easy assessment. No more struggling to integrate STEAM into your lesson planning.
