littleBits is a library of electronic modules designed for the young to prototype, learn and play. It's “LEGOs for the iPad generation”.
Join us for the littleBits Global Makeathon, the world's largest physical and virtual littleBits workshop. Young makers from around the world — New York, San Francisco, London, Madrid, Montreal, Shenzhen and more — are gathering for the weekend to Make Something that Does Something and Bring Your City to Life! Join us at Silicon Straits CO.LAB in Ayer Rajah for a day of creativity, imagination, and fun.
All Bits, crafts, and tools will be provided by Get Hacking, sponsored by littleBits from the US. This event is recommended for children 8 and up, with parental guidance; tickets include attendance for one child and one accompanying parent. Sign up for either 1pm-3.30pm or 3pm-5.30pm sessions.
