Sometimes when you are walking around the show floor of the CHA Megashow (this one was held in January of 2016), you find booths that really catch your eye and get you exciting about crafting at a whole ‘nother level. Such was the case at the Chibitronics booth.
Their idea is to integrate STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) WITH crafting. I love this concept- getting kids experimenting with making creative things AND feeding their brains with science!
Take a look at the video I created via Periscope:
Chibitronics is an evolution of Jie Qi’s passion for technology and art. As a child, Jie loved arts and crafts. At Columbia University, she studied mechanical engineering, and wanted to combine her love of technology with her love of art and design.

I’ve already shown this to my daughter and she was excited to try it out… and I’m thinking that her entire class would benefit from the creative AND science-learning benefits.
What do you think? Would you give it a go yourself? I’d love to hear from you!

I bought two packages of Chibitronics from HSN a few months ago, but haven’t taken the time to figure out exactly what I want to do with them, but it’s definitely a cool little product. I’m a retired electrician and I think this is a great product for kids! I thought I would use them for the 3D papercrafts I make from SVGCuts. Mary designs very cool buildings like Christmas Manor, etc. and I thought I could light them up with Chibitronics. Thanks for taking the time to give the folks at Chibitronics some exposure. I love Craft Test Dummies and this is one of the reasons why. Thanks, Jenny!
