Itty Bitty Buggy, our newest product kit, launched on September 19 and we are thrilled to bring it to market.

Our newest STEM educational toy, the follow-up to the award-winning Itty Bitty City, is a 5-in-1 kit that is another perfect tool for inspiring and engaging kids with STEM/STEAM education.

The Buggy is the main part of the kit, a true CPT (Code Programmable Toy). Download our Itty Bitty Buggy app from the Apple Store or Google Play!  Buggy will trace lines on a map, recognize colors and voice commands; is remote controlled and Bluetooth compatible.

Build interesting creatures, too! The sloth, Dodo bird, alien and ladybug all perform some very cool functions. Itty Bitty Buggy supports Scratch, Python and Arduino.

Of course, Itty Bitty Buggy is LEGO® compatible, like all our other products, which means the possibilities for creating awesome creatures is only limited by one’s imagination.

Itty Bitty Buggy is our most reasonably priced product and is available in our Store and on Amazon.

New MIX Kit Series Launch to Facilitate STEM/STEAM In Classroom

Microduino Launches New MIX Kit Series to Facilitate STEM/STEAM Instruction and Learning in Schools

On May 9, Microduino announced the introduction and availability of four curriculum-ready Microduino MIX Kits to facilitate STEM/STEAM instruction in a broad spectrum of academic institutions. Exclusively designed for the education market, Microduino MIX Kits increase students’ interest and proficiency in skills critical to building tomorrow’s ideas, products and workforces.

In developing the product line, Microduino teamed with teachers, administrators, and academic experts and visionaries to develop a series of four powerful learning systems that progressively teach children, as young as five years old, basic electronic circuitry, coding, and product design. Microduino MIX Kits also encourage the creation and exploration of limitless applications beyond included pre-coded design projects. Collectively, the four new products represent an innovative instruction approach that builds upon the company’s existing mPuzzle and mPie product lines to deliver a comprehensive STEM/STEAM education roadmap for elementary and high school students.

Numbered 1-4, each Microduino MIX Kit includes a combination of hardware components, coding resources, and extensive instructional materials to guide students step by step through challenging in-class product development and coding projects. Each subsequent MIX Kit focuses on more sophisticated concepts so students can further their abilities to think logically and sequentially, and solve life and technology-focused problems.

Microduino Aligned with NGSS, ISTE and Common Core Standards For STEM

Microduino Products Are Aligned with The Latest NGSS, ISTE and Common Core Standards for STEM/STEAM Education

All Microduino products are aligned with the top tiered educational standards. These include: the latest Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS), International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and Common Core guidelines for STEM instruction.

In 2017, the company engaged EdGate Correlation Services, the world’s leading content mapper to educational standards. EdGate verified and validated Microduino’s entire suite of products. These include supporting in-classroom instruction materials and course cards, all of which conform to the three major collections of standards. This is particularly important, as more schools and school districts are expanding their STEM/STEAM curricula, and are seeking affordable, high-quality products. Microduino meets the requirements of all three standardization bodies.

For educators and parents, knowing our products are aligned with the highest educational standards for STEM/STEAM makes Microduino a top choice for your students or children’s learning requirements.
