Make’s LEDs Sewing Project at the Exploratorium May 12, 2018 #WearableWednesday
There’s still time (and space!) to get tickets for either session of this workshop!
This Programmable LEDs Sewing Project requires no soldering!
Want to learn how to add lights that you can control and program to your clothes or a costume? This class shows you how! Use a microcontroller and programmable LEDs to light up a felt cuff and change the program with a touch of your finger.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
