WKS121212: Soft Circuitry Basics
Class Number 777-27547

This hands-on class introduces students to soft circuitry and the concept of soft and wearable interfaces. Soft, flexible and wearable materials will be explored and used to build a color mixer LED bracelet, using a RGB LED, that each student will be able to wear home.

Students will learn the basics of electricity while building sensors and circuits using conductive and resistive fabrics, threads and notions. Some of the concepts that will covered include: What makes up a basic circuit? What does soft circuitry mean and how can it be applied? Electrical components and their soft handmade counterparts: digital switch, variable resistor, fixed resistor, sensors, electrical traces and wires, LEDs.

Each student will be given a source list of where to buy materials, parts list for the bracelet, and the laser file so they can alter and make as many color mixer bracelets as they want. There will be examples of soft sensors, materials and circuits for the students to interact with outside of the one they will be making in class.
