Happy Birthday, littleBits

The Birthday Challenge has officially closed, and it was so much fun!  While the judges deliberate, let’s see out how Bitsters from around the world celebrated.

Led by Horacio Mayorca, the Castor Maker Lab Chapter celebrated littleBits’ 5th Birthday Party at Panama.

Panama Bitsters celebrate

“The celebration of littleBits’ 5th Birthday Party was our first activity in Castor Maker Lab in Panama. We created a workshop where teamwork allowed us to build a very special cake in which creativity and imagination were the main tools for our project. Happy Birthday to the entire team of littleBits.”

 

Olivia and Jo from the Hoboken Charter School Chapter in New Jersey made a drawing robot write “Happy Birthday” – WOW!

KidInventors chapter members in Lima, Peru invented a remote controlled Cake in the Face machine.  First the cardboard Bitster blows out the candle with the fan.  Can you guess what happens next?!
