"BitLab" is an innovative classroom that integrates scientific history, sensor technology with quick prototyping and public speaking in a team-based interactive learning environment. In order to inspire the students' spirit of innovation, everything in this classroom is built by small "Bit". Electronic sensor-based "BitLab Bricks' enable the students to conceive their own innovative design, which covers daily life applications. A prototype is then built using geometric shapes. In the end, each team writes up a description of their "product" and gives a presentation on its features and functionalities. The interactive learning platform is delivered through team-based "BitLab Curriculum". The status and impact of BitLab in Chinese schools are presented. © 2013 IEEE.
