NYC: Let’s Build a Smart Holiday City with urbacraft and littleBits!

December 13, 2015 @ 13:00 - 16:00

Free

Join us for a Sunday afternoon hands-on family workshop bringing architecture, toys, and electronics together!

Using Urbacraft’s City Crafting System – also known as the “hacker’s Lego”, you can build roads, towers, and contraptions of all kinds and bring them to life with littleBits! A 6-foot tall skyscraper with a moving elevator? A motion-triggered parking garage? Blinking street lights or Times Square? Done.

Please come build with us with your own ideas (all themes welcome) and let’s make a whole interactive city together – it’s a fun and productive way to spend a Sunday afternoon! The workshop will be lead by architect and urban designer, Ayssar Arida (co-founder of urbacraft), and the littleBits Store team, so there will be lots of STE(A)M learning opportunities while having fun.

By the way, urbacraft is not just for kids, adults will enjoy it too:
