This class is a go! 2/26/13 crc
Create a sock softie and add a simple 2-LED circuit using conductive threads and electronic components to create glowing eyes!
This class will lead to others which include more sophisticated sewable electronics.
My son focused on the lessons he learned in the workshop for his Science Fair project. He made more sock dolls with electronics and posed the question 'Can a toy express love?' for his invention project. He designed some interesting interactions. He was very proud.
Note from Trish... me too...
