Advanced Maker Workshop: Sewn Circuits

Friday, June 04, 2021 - 6:00 PM

Running Time: 2 hours

Audience: Ages: 13+

Advanced Maker Workshop (Ages 13+): Sewn Circuits

Come tinker with us! Explore electric circuits in a new way by sewing them! A Science World Tinkerer will show you how to use conductive thread, LEDs and felt to create your own whimsical light-up projects. At the end, you ll have your very own sewn circuit! No prior sewing experience is required.

 

What is "tinkering"?

Tinkering is mindful messing about with tools and materials, with the goal of finding out their possibilities and limitations. When we tinker, we learn about scientific topics, make new things from existing parts, solve problems, and learn by making mistakes.

 

Some specialized materials for this workshop will be provided by Science World. Other materials will not and will need to be provided by the participant to complete the activity. Science World will provide:

  • Sew-able battery clip
  • Conductive thread
  • 1 coin battery
  • LED lights

 

These required materials will NOT be provided by Science World. Please bring the following materials to the virtual session:

  • Felt or similar fabric, at least two sheets but more preferred
  • Sewing needle (with a large loop for thick conductive thread)
  • Regular thread
  • Scissors
  • Permanent markers
  • Pencil and scrap paper
  • Pliers (small or needle-nose preferred)

 

This workshop takes place online using Zoom. Meeting details will be emailed upon registration. We will send link to you prior to the workshop.

  • You are encouraged to have your camera and microphone on during the workshop to engage fully. You may be asked to mute your microphone during some parts of the workshop.
  • The kit of materials will be mailed to you for use during the workshop if you register before May 25th. If you register after, kits with the materials can be picked up by registrants at the Science World Kaleidoscope Science Store.
