Mrs. Cantu's students (Delton-Kellogg Middle School, MI) were introduced to LittleBits for the first time on Tuesday, January 3, for this challenge.

Here is the students' description:

Owl
Our project that we made for little bits was an owl the owl in Harry Potter was Hedwig, Harry Potter's snowy owl.

What we made the owl do was we made it’s eyes light up and her wings spin.

What we made her out of was cardboard feet that were really big because they were meant to be the wings and after we found out that the first wings we made were to heavy for the fans we had to make paper wings and attach it with tape to the fan to make it spin, we made the body out of a plastic bag with paper in it.

The parts we used were a Battery, Bridge, 2 lights, and 2 fans.

Duration: 2-3 hours
