Create Wearable Electronics
FAB LAB partners with UCSD Extension K-12 College Exploration.
July, Monday 11 to Friday 15, 2011
Learn about electronics and microcontrollers the fun way while making your t-shirt talk, your hat tell you the temperature, or your shoes light up with every step! ‘Wearable Electronics’ is a project-based course focused on the use of electronics on textile surfaces. In addition to being a good introduction to electronics, this class is hands-on: students will create their own wearable projects, using the Arduino microcontroller.
By the end of this course, students will have an intermediate level understanding of electronic and programming concepts, including, but not limited to: switches, sensors, networks, embedded systems and the “Arduino” microcontroller. While the course is fast-paced, it is a fun and hands-on application of learning, and students will be given thorough context and reference materials as well as personal assistance in class.
