After pizza, catching up, and a brief chat about our favorite parts of the book, we turned our attention to creating our own robot creations using LittleBits and a bunch of other random materials (recycled boxes, cups, latex gloves, pipe cleaners, etc.). Everyone got right to work, a few with very specific ideas in mind of what they wanted their machines to be able to do and a few just exploring what's possible with LittleBits pieces. There are pictures below of the finished robots, but to really get a sense of the creative genius we tapped into on Monday night, watch the videos showcasing each robot and its abilities!
