Valentine's Maker Projects

I came across a couple of really fun-looking STEM/Makerspace-inspired Valentine's Day projects, and I thought I'd share them with you here:

Light Up Circuit Valentines 

This light up circuit project is very similar to the one I used to teach in 8th grade art last year, but with a Valentine's twist! I think I'm going to make one for Mr. Leban.

LittleBits Love-O-Meter 

We use LittleBits in 8th grade computer lit class, so this idea is pretty humorous to me. It uses an arduino bit, which we don't have, but it gives me an idea for a future assignment: to challenge students to create tiny "arcade" type inventions using LittleBits. Super fun!

Happy Valentine's Day (soon)!
