Looking for ways to inspire your child during school holidays?

Soft circuits are electrical circuits created using flexible conductive materials (such as conductive threads and fabrics) in conjunction with discrete electronics components (such as lights, batteries, switches, and sensors). Integrate electronic and craft materials to create exciting projects with flashing, blinking and twinkling lights.

Students will have the opportunity to create several projects, including making plush toys, light up wrist bands, broaches, book marks and more. They can even bring something from home to sew lights into – for example a shirt, bag, hat or hair tie.

Learning to design and create soft circuits of increasing complexity has the potential to be an empowering and formative experience for students. By integrating electronic and craft materials, soft circuit activities can appeal to a wider variety of students than traditional science or art activities. Furthermore, students should develop a sense of confidence when working with science and technology, as they will be supported throughout the process of successfully debugging unexpected behaviour in their projects.

 

What do you need?

Bring something from home that you can sew lights onto. Some ability to sew is desirable but not essential. Suitable for Years 3 to 5. This workshop is not restricted to Scotch students, so feel free to encourage a friend to enrol with you!
