Teacher Tuesdays at the NYC littleBits Pop-Up Store


This fall, the people at littleBits are starting a bi-weekly series called “Teacher Tuesdays” at their NYC Pop-Up store in SoHo!

The idea is to give educators an opportunity to learn about littleBits with a free workshop while sipping on wine, munching on tasty bites, and meeting other educators from across the tristate area.

See below for detailed information on three upcoming Teacher Tuesday events.
