Workshop Spotlight: 1/4 Tech Holiday Making

Exploring Electronics for Kids

December 20, 2013

Looking for a last minute holiday gift idea or trying to figure out a way to keep the kids happy over the holidays? Sounds like you need some festive making inspiration!

Today, we are inspired by the ‘Electronics for Kids’ littleBits workshop from 1/4Tech (UnCuatroTech), based in San Francisco. Run by EdTech enthusiasts Ana Maria Munoz and Tania Arrayales Freedman, 1/4 Tech is on a mission to create a space for K-12 kids to LEARN and BUILD all things tech in a fun and safe environment. We were honored to be chosen as their first workshop! You can check out the pictures from the event on their facebook page and see their new website here.
