We always love seeing the inspiring work educators are doing around the world with our products. Adafruit customer DJ Kast wrote in to tell us about this wearable tech class for low income 6th grade girls. They write:

My name is DJ Kast and I am the STEM programs manager for the USC Joint Educational Project and USC Neighborhood Academic Initiative. I taught a Wearable technology class this last spring with a group of 6th grade girls and I used many adafruit products for the wearables that my students made.

They created different products throughout the semester and then created final products for the fashion show in front of the entire program and their parents. I would love my students and the class to be featured on your blog.

  1. I get a “session timed out” error when I try to follow the links. Perhaps the links from DJ Kast’s email aren’t sufficient for website sharing?
