There’s been a lot of buzz about wearables. Aside from Fitbits and smart watches, what about talking shoes, light up gloves, lullabye singing pillowcases… What is something you’d imagine? You can never dream too big, but first mastering some technical skills can help you live it.
In this three session workshop series, we’ll facilitate a fun brainstorming around creative wearable possibilities, and provide an introduction to the Flora microcontroller. We’ll start out with a simple interactive t-shirt project (or you can bring in your own clothing item) which incorporates a single sensor to program. Included with the workshop is the circuit board, sensors, and other fabrication materials for you to keep. (Note: If you’ve never sewn with conductive thread before, we recommend you taking one of our Soft Circuits workshop first).
Session 1: Overview of emerging materials, IDE, basic fabrication techniques, design ideas
Session 2: Designing circuit layout and considering usability, customizing sample code
Session 3: Fabrication time, project shares & feedback
Get creative and take home (maybe even wear) what you make
When & Where
Join our MakerSpace for Youth Inventors of All Ages
The Makery is an educational makerspace - part shop, part workshop, part exploreground. A venue where youth and adults are encouraged to be curious, to tinker, to experiment, and to make with technology. The Makery is a place where communities can gather to play with the creative power of digital design and fabrication, physical computing, and creative coding. The inverse of a store, come create from your own imagination. In addition to workshop classes, we also build periodic exhibits and events for the public to explore. Check out what's happening.
