Soft Circuits Workshop with Rails Girls Atlanta Recap

FullSizeRender 5This weekend we held a workshop with Rails Girls Atlanta teaching the basics of creating soft circuits using embroidery. Participants were each given a kit with embroidery supplies, and LEDS, conductive thread and a battery. They were taught the basics of circuits and how it applies beyond wearables and into the world around them, and then how these skills can be adapted to computing using microcontrollers like arduino.

Thank you so much to Rails Girls Atlanta for co-hosting this event, and Big Nerd Ranch and Healthfinch for sponsoring!
