We’re very proud to announce Ayah Bdeir has been named a “2014 Innovator Under 35” by MIT Tech Review. The award recognizes “exceptionally talented technologists whose work has great potential to transform the world.”

MIT Tech Review interviewed Ayah about her background, founding littleBits, and her mission to make technology accessible for anyone to use creatively.

“Bdeir takes pride in the fact that the product appeals to girls and boys, children and adults, designers and engineers. ‘A screwdriver is a screwdriver for everybody,’ she says. ‘It doesn’t matter who you are or how you use it. Every person will find what they want.'”
