Ayah Bdeir

littleBits is an open source library of modular electronics – Lego-like blocks with electronic circuits that snap together with the help of magnets – designed to make learning science fun. It was designed by none other than Ayah Bdeir, an engineer and interactive artist, who wasn’t really sure she wanted to finish her education as an engineer in the first place. Now a leading mind in educational tech, she has received many titles and awards since.
