littleBits sounds really cool! I personally don’t know how to do any of this sort of stuff (my mom didn’t know, and my dad didn’t teach me), but I don’t want that to hold my kid back right now. She’s super into the book Rosie Revere Engineer right now, and I keep thinking it’d be a good time to up my STEM game.
One thing we did do was we built this color-changing lamp together. I learned a lot too!
