Getting Hands-On with Soft Circuits


Getting Hands-On with Soft Circuits is a set of instructional materials which seeks to expose middle and high school students to the creative, expressive, and computationally engaging domain of e-textiles. Engaging in hands-on activities, such as creating soft, electronic textile (e-textile) circuits, is one promising path to building self-efficacy and scientific understanding � both of which can have a dramatic impact on diversity in the field of computing. The instructional materials include a workshop activity guide and an accompanying kit of low-cost craft and electronic components.
