Cyber Saturday – All Girl Event – Circuit Building with LilyPad
February 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Circuit Building with LilyPad – 3rd-8th Grades Girls
Students make their own design decisions about controlling the LEDs in a light-up, e-textile circuit, plush toy project that they make using LilyPad components and conductive thread.
They will first learn about the switches—an on/off switch and a button—exploring these two ways of controlling the flow of electric current to LEDs and showing them the difference between closed and open circuits. Then they craft their creative light-up plush pals made from sewn and stuffed felt pieces and sew their electric circuits.
Through this sewable electronics project, students gain a familiarity with circuits, switches and LEDs—everyday items in today’s world and the components used in so many engineered devices.
