Students in Mrs. Nyhan’s 8th grade art classes have had the incredible opportunity of working with LittleBits technology to create animated kinetic sculptures. The art department received a grant from the Concord Trust last spring to purchase LittleBits STEAM kits for all art students to use. LittleBits are circuitry bricks that can be connected to animate and bring sculpture and inventive prototypes to the next level. Students had the opportunity to build on being effective collaborators and creative producers though this process. Mrs. Kashi’s and Mrs. Bednaz’s classes will be also using these in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
