Playground Table 11: #HackYourCharacters with Little Bits

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

What if your favorite character from a book or movie had a new superpower?! Well, the power of littleBits and making can help you bring a character to life by giving him or her a new superpower, like a wand that lights up and casts a spell! Participants will explore the many options with littleBits modules that can add interactivity of lights, movement, sound and more! Then the next big step is building it into the design when creating their new 2.0 version of the character using recycled materials!   We will be working through the process of brainstorming, creative designing, prototyping and publishing the updated character narrative. Hopefully this will spark new ideas you can take back to your classrooms!
