Sure @JackANDJude , originally I was invited to present to 1 kindergarten class but then word got around in the school and I ended up with 4 classes, which was definitely more of a challenge to maintain engagement. I had also planned a live stream, however I dont think I had good reception so that didnt quite work out, but I was able to capture the video you see during the last segment of my demo. What seems to really excite the kids are the demos that bring life to inanimate objects. This is my 4th time providing tech demos like the one shown and the really cool thing is that Ive shown this to Kindergartners as well as 5th graders and the reactions are pretty close.
This is sorta my rough outline (class interactions and reactions alter things as I go):
- Introduction to the electronics around us (tvs, toys, etc)
- Breakdown of sample devices (flashlights, alarm systems)
- Recreating devices with littleBits (intro to bits)
- Building more complicated devices (Puppets, robots)
- Hands on
