Wearable Electronics and eTextiles with the Lilypad Arduino

Date: Saturday, July 20, 2013
Time: 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Place: TrepHub – 907 Strawbridge Ave, Melbourne, FL

Add lights and electronics to garments and accessories with the Lilypad Arduino!  This is a special version of the popular electronic controller specially designed to be washable. This workshop will give you hands-on experience with using the Lilypad Arduino. The goal is for each participant to leave with an item of their own creation. Materials will be provided for a headband or small purse; if you have a specific project in mind please contact the event organizer, we’re more than happy to discuss it with you!

Materials: Please bring a laptop computer. If you don’t already have a Lilypad Arduino, a limited number of Lilypad Protosnap Development Boards will be available on-site so you can take your project home with you ($25). For advanced participants, other types of Lilypads may be available, please contact the organizer.

Notes: This workshop can be taken after the morning Intro To Arduino workshop for additional practice!

Ages 12+ (A parent / guardian must remain in the classroom during the workshop).
