  • Be careful here. Nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get financial help. Any answer of a loan lender to your question, you MUST ignore, because they are SCAMS…real SCAMS…i was a victim of which i was ripped thousands of dollars…well thank God for a Christian sister who referred me to a loan organisation.They made my life a valuable one and gave it a meaning. When the sister gave me their contact, I contacted them. Then I requested for a loan with all the necessary evidence to prove that I actually needed a loan, they approved a loan of $30,000.00 USD and in 48 hours after meeting up to their necessary requirements, my loan was deposited in my bank account . Though i was very nervous with the loan organization at first due to my previous bad experiences,especially when the issue of me settling the transfer charges came up, I hold on to my faith due to the fact that my relative referred me, got it cleared,and as God should have it, little did I know that my financial shortcomings has come to a final HALT. If not for that quick referral from a christian sister to that genuine source ,I would have regretted my total life,because at that point in time i just divorced the mother of my son, and my son (Kenneth) was faced with a life and death situation. I was faced with his hospital bills and i was also faced with foreclosure at my apartment.Details of this GOD-SENT organization won’t be disclose for now for fear of impersonation ( because it has been discovered that some persons are not really in need of financial help, but they just want to collect money from this genuine christian loan organization). And it is because of this reason they don,t give out loan anyhow. You must be able to convince them very well, and provide good proofs to show that you really need a loan before they can approve it for you. Their charge is very affordable and reliable compare to many out there,their interest rates is just 7%,little documentation,and no credit check. As i have earlier said, for security reasons i can only provide my email for anyone in need of more information to contact me to get in touch with them. Embrace this and be free from scammers.

Introduction to Hardware with littleBits

  1. An Introduction to Hardware Using littleBits and your imagination.
  2. Hardware is how we describe electronics that connect together and make something new.
  3. Think of the things you use.

  5. Video Games Photo by Jackson Lo on Flickr
  6. Tablets Photo by KuZo 72 on Flickr
  7. They’re all made of other smaller pieces. Usually, many smaller pieces.
  8. Pieces like these.
  9. These pieces work together to make something new.
  10. Microsoft Band
  11. Remote Control Car
  12. Can you think of something that is made of smaller pieces?
  13. How do these pieces work together?
  14. Power enables things to work.
  15. Input is a signal to do something.
  16. Output is what happens.
  17. Connection allows pieces to talk.
  18. Logic is how things should happen.
  19. Guess what? You’re going to build something!
  20. You’re going to use littleBits.
  21. They’re like electronic Legos.
  22. There are all different kinds. POWER OUTPUT LOGIC SENSORS WIRE INPUT
  23. Power bits are blue.
  24. Input bits are pink.
  25. Wire bits are orange.
  26. Output bits are green.
  27. Ready to build something simple?
  28. Let’s explore littleBits. 1 FLASHLIGHT 2 3 LIGHT METER PULSE + SPIN
  29. Try it out!
  30. GOOD JOB!
  31. What do you think?
  32. Any ideas of what you could build?

  35. Ready to build something more complex?
  36. It’s time to get creative!
  38. Your options include: Pick something to build Invent something new Both A B C
  39. Pick a starting point 1 2 SWING + ACTION SPIN + BRANCH
  40. Invent something BRAINSTORM BUILD Sketch out your idea. Using littleBits and materials.
  41. Or, do both. We’ll be here to help.
  42. Let’s build!
  43. Time to wrap up.
  44. Demo time! Who wants to share?
  45. What did you learn?
  46. Hardware is fun! • Hardware is made of smaller pieces. • There are different types of pieces. • Smaller pieces talk to each other. • We explored littleBits. • You made something unique!
