Presentation Title: Girls Make IT Circuits Coding and eTextiles
Presentation Description: The workshop will highlight the evolution of a project that has been successful in engaging girls in coding via Making with Soft Circuits and eTextiles. Inspired by M.I.T. s robotic garden, Lucie deLaBruere is developing coding lessons/activities that helps students create LED enhanced artifacts for a collaborative community garden and learn to code a Lilypad Arduino microprocessor to give each artifact a unique presence in the garden. The project not only builds interest in coding, it also builds confidence in your ability to code.
