Check out this call for young inventors sent over by our friends at littleBits!

We’re looking for three inventors (aged 8-12) to be a part of something not so little!

littleBits will be filming a 3-episode web-series, filled with fun challenges and exploration. Each child will have the chance to invent, create and experiment with the new littleBits kits, BEFORE THEY ARE RELEASED.

littleBits is an open source library of electronic modules that snap together with magnets for prototyping, learning and fun. You can find more information about us on: www.littlebits.cc/about

The show will be hosted by none other than the founder of littleBits, Ayah Bdeir.

3 littleInventors, taking on 3 fun challenges, to make 3 awesome inventions.

The participants will be part of a trailblazing experience! And at the end of the experience, participants will get to take home a littleBits library valued at over $500!

If you and your child live in the tri-state area and would like to participate in the littleBits web-series (filming a few select days in August), send us an email at: [email protected]

To sign up your child to participate, head here!
