Hello Stan, and all.
I really discovered littleBits 2 years ago, when we began using them in workshops with 4-H youth. During that initial experience I also began to wonder about using littleBits to model redstone circuits created in Minecraft - the rest, as they say, is history.
But in all seriousness, I think both Minecraft and littleBits are powerful hooks to introduce a full range of concepts and processes to kids (adults, too if they are willing to ‘play’). The merging of the two only deepens the potential. Using them together really does bridge the virtual/actual chasm and I look forward to how people explore the new space created by that.
Really glad to be here and I’m looking forward to getting to know you all.
