Families spent an afternoon at the library tinkering and creating. We set up several drop in stations with LittleBits, 3D printing pens, Rainbow Looms, and Legos.
The 3D printing pens extrude heated plastic filament that cools almost instantly into a solid, stable structure. You can draw up into the air and create anything you can think of.
littleBits is the easiest and most extensive way to learn and prototype with electronics. Explore the basic and premium kits (power, sensors, LED, circuits). Check out the video above for a very short sample of how it works.
Rainbow Loom is a plastic loom used to weave colorful rubber bands into bracelets and charms
We didn’t forget the little ones! Legos are always a hit.
