Ayah Bdeir, founder and CEO of littleBits, has long been a part of the maker movement and has lead several STEAM initiatives. She has observed how quickly young children can take to building with electronics and craft materials. A child's innate desire to create and transcend boundaries is something adults can learn from. In this presentation, Ayah will combine the lessons she's learned with ongoing trends. She will also announce the winners of the littleBits Global Makeathon.
