2 Week Workshop in Brooklyn will help you create your own interactive accessories #WearableWednesday
Thanks to Katya for writing in about this event, it sounds like a good one! You can purchase tickets here.
This 2 week workshop taught by Birce Ozkan and Yuchen Zhang, will teach participants how to create an interactive accessory!
This two part workshop will take place from 2-5pm on Sunday, September 18th and 25th.
You can choose from making a light-up biking glove or light-up hat from the beginning. Birce and Yuchen will walk everyone through each step from learning conductive materials, sewable LEDS, DIY sensors to finalizing their soft circuit design. By the end of the class, each student will be able to take their finished project home and use it for running or biking during the night.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
