Year 9 students in Gothenburg, Sweden were tasked with creating projects combining engineering & crafts, and developed several “portables” (aka wearables) including a theft-proof bag, exercise garments (think pulse sensor heartbeat monitor), and even a ‘dating’ brooch. All the projects utilized the Circuit Playground and the students are going on to demonstrate and explain their wearables at an upcoming gathering in Brighton, UK.
Always great to see Circuit Playground in the wild for individual and group learning!
