Wearables 2.0: Program your clothing

Wearables 2.0: Program your clothing

Learn to program the Adafruit Gemma to add complexity and interest to your wearables project.

Are you 11 to 18 years old and fascinated by making things? Have you already dabbled with wearable electronics and want to take the next step? If so, register now to attend a special week long class on programmable, wearable circuitry. Taught by Kristin Berbawy of Berbawy Makers, this program will teach you how to combine electronics and programming using an Adafruit Gemma to create a wearable device that illuminates according to your specifications.

Live Zoom sessions will be held Monday through Friday with makerspace experts who will answer your questions, demonstrate how to make the circuits, and give you tips on how to take the program to the next level. On Friday you’ll have a chance to showcase your work and show off your program to the group.

Registrants will be contacted a week before the event with information about how to pick up a kit containing all the material you need from their local Alameda County Library. Space is limited so register today.

We at AC Library care about your privacy. None of our live programs where members can chat or share video are recorded and none of the chat logs are saved. No one who attends a virtual program will be able to see the list of other attendees. Links to join a program will not be posted publicly and will only be sent to members who register in advance.  

AC Library currently uses GoToMeeting and Zoom for virtual programming. We encourage you to click on the join link a few minutes early to download the meeting software for the first time. If you do not want to download software, please use the Chrome browser to participate. When you login you will be given the option to share your webcam and microphone. The choice is yours! We’d love to see you like we do at the library, but also understand if you are still in your bathrobe.
