Last Thursday evening, the Make It! Break It! group researched what E-Textiles are about and explored different examples on the internet. They were then introduced to some sewable electronic components; the Lilytiny microcontroller and LEDs. They built some simple circuits using crocodile leads.
When they were finished experimenting with their circuits, they were introduced to some basic sewing techniques. This will prepare them for next week when they will use conductive thread to create some interesting pieces of E-Fabric designs.
