This week we are celebrating the arrival of the new Star Wars movie with a design challenge! Using LittleBits students were asked to create a bit that allowed them to “use the force” to move the lightsaber toward them. This activity supports the Next Generation Science Standard practice that states:
Define a simple design problem that can be solved through the development of an object, tool, process, or system and includes several criteria for success and constraints on materials, time, or cost.
Using the workshop set from LittleBits, students were shown the following video to set the scene:
May the Force be with you!
