STEAM You Can Wear: Personalize Design Experiences with Coding and Electronics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

An LED, battery, and conductive thread can bring principles of electronics and engineering to learners of all ages. Interactive jewelry, bookmarks, and stuffed toys become a vehicle for making powerful ideas accessible to a diverse population of learners. Learn how to combine computer science with these “soft circuits” or “e-Textiles” to make singing stuffed animals, animated t-shirts, jackets with directional signals, or backpacks with burglar alarms with the addition of the Lilypad Arduino or Flora microcontroller. Design, STEM, arts, and crafts come together with these easily accessible technologies for all.
