Save Big on a littleBits Workshop!
Are you familiar with littleBits? (affiliate link) They are the LEGO of the electronics world. The color-coded snap-together electronic bits make it easy to build simple circuits and add motion, sound and light to craft projects. You can use them right out of the box and have loads of fun.
Pete Hill, the official leader of the Chicago littleBits community, is hosting a workshop on Saturday, June 18 that will help beginner and experienced Bitsters take their skills to a new level. The session will take place in the West Loop at Catalyze Chicago.
The program fee is $40, unless you're a STEM Kids Chicago or Maker Mom fan, that is, because we've got a 25% off discount for you!
