Erin Mulcahy and Dave Sharp

At SXSWedu, we were fortunate to see littleBits founder and CEO Ayah Bdeir unveil the new littleBits STEAM set (watch here).  In fact, we were quite impressed to hear about their gender neutral design and see examples of students using the sets to solve real problems. We immediately knew that we had to find out more about this invention-based learning tool, so we are proud to welcome littleBits’ Education Product Strategy Lead Erin Mulcahy and Product Designer Dave Sharp to Lab Out Loud. Listen now to learn how you might use the littleBits STEAM set to engage students in problem solving, creative thinking and collaboration through invention-based learning.
