2017 Workshop Descriptions

June 14 - Technological Textiles!
Explore simple circuits. Use conductive thread and LEDs to add some flash to your fashion! This year we will be going beyond simple circuits and exploring Lilypad Arduino technology to make programmable projects that flash and blink.

June 21 & 28 - Design, Print, Repeat
Explore print-making techniques in this two-part workshop series. In the first workshop, assemble your print-making supplies. Then, bring your own textiles and begin transferring your design! Participants are required to register for both workshops.

July 12 & 19 - Build Your Own Robot
In this two-part series workshop, get acquainted with circuit boards, explore bread boards, and then use your new knowledge to build simple robots as a team! Participants are required to register for both workshops.

July 26 - 3-D Print It!
Learn about computer-aided design, and model your own 3-D printed creation. Learn the ins and outs of Tinkercad, and design your own project. You could even create a customized fidget spinner!

This workshop will be held off-site at DMACC.

August 2 & 9 - Cams, Cranks & Cogs
Automaton, or mechanical moving toys, have been around for hundreds of years. Learn what happens inside of these kinetic artworks, and create your own unique moving sculpture! Participants are required to register for both workshops.

*Participants must register for both weeks' workshops, as Week 2 will build upon Week 1.
