About This Class

Join developer Sara Chipps for an introduction to one of tech's top trends: wearable devices that integrate fascinating and functional features into daily fashion. No prior experience needed! Get the essentials as she shares her process, then put your learning into action with a fun project using LED lights.

You will use light code to program a custom blinking pattern into a string of LED lights with an Arduino Gemma, and sew the lights into your clothing or a favorite accessory. This class is great place to start for anyone curious about coding.
