We’ll send out one mini-challenge a day starting June 17. This is a challenge-based approach that will have your students inventing and studying instruments, learning about sound, mechanical motion, creatively solving problems, and working together to put on a massive musical flash mob….Sign up HERE to get your daily dose of dancing challenges.

We’ve compiled a ton of resources to help you bring camp into the classroom as the school year winds down. Whether you want to give your students a musical-themed capstone project or host a workshop with friends, here are your go-to tools for unleashing anyone’s creativity:

CELEBRATING NATIONAL WEEK OF MAKING

In 2014, President Obama announced the Nation of Makers initiative, a call for students, educators, entrepreneurs, designers, and more to learn the technologies that will let them invent anything. From STEM learning experiences to STEAM tinkering, the National Week of Making is bringing the “Maker mindset” to the masses by focusing on creative problem solving, curiosity, collaboration, and critical thinking. As an educator, take the Maker Promise to get the world inventing. As a child of the Maker Movement, littleBits is dedicated to getting the world inventing.
