This week we released the Temperature Sensor, shared some littleBits inspired Valentine’s Day cards & we finally launched this awesome thing we’ve been tirelessly working on: Invent Anything! Let’s take a look back at the week that was.
#InventAnything is a free 5-week course to teach makers how to get the most out of their littleBits. So far we’ve gotten a bajillion signups and we’ve been sooooo thrilled by the immediate response:

Need some help with your Valentine’s Day gifts? No sweat, we got you covered. We shared a whole bunch of cupid-approved projects for makers of all kinds. We also created some printable cards featuring bits photoshopped into cheesy romcoms!
littleBits was featured in an NPR story about Project M@ch, an organization that is creating Makerspaces in Children’s Hospitals. Project M@ch also shared some inspiring pictures over twitter of cystic fibrosis patients tinkering with bits. Truly heartwarming 🙂

This week we highlighted a case study from Eastern Pennsylvania Elementary School teacher Collette J, whose task cards help students understand not only how circuits are built but also how they function.
