Check out the littleBits 5th Birthday “Party Train” by Etierne and the District 75 STEM team of the NYC Department of Education!  Ayah Bdeir is the engineer in the first of six party themed cars that each do something different.  There’s a BitGuy who tries to hit the piñata, a cake with a glowing flame, a puppy peeking out of a gift box, and so much more.  You really need to see it for yourself:


Happy Birthday, littleBits!

The Birthday Challenge has officially closed, and it was so much fun! While the judges deliberate, check out how Bitsters celebrate:

5th Anniversary Celebration Kit by chapter members from Zurich, Switzerland. “To celebrate littleBits 5th birthday we created a special box, which plays happy birthday and opens at the end of the song. When the box is open, the light sensor switches the lights on to bring some party feeling.”

They even made an adorable blinking logo.
