Host: Rutgers Center for Mathematics, Science and Computer Education

Date: January 17th 2019
Time:
10:00AM – 2:00PM

Cost: $85.00
Location: Rutgers Makerspace, 35 Berrue Circle, Piscataway, NJ 08854

Sewn Circuits and Digital Fabrication

We will be making light up Valentine’s Day themed projects that you can take back to the classroom. In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the basics of electronics sewing, electronic circuits, and microcontroller. We will also learn how to design and cut felt with a desktop cutter commonly used with vinyl.

Desktop Cutter skills have been covered in Designing with the Vinyl Cutter workshop but this can serve as an excellent refresher while working with a different medium.
