Using e-textiles to explore and understand designs of electronic circuits.  We will use light emitting diodes (LED), conductive thread and batteries to enhance designs for a bookmark that’s bright enough to read by!  Also, we’ll show you how you can LIGHTEN UP your own barrettes, bracelets, sweaters, hats … just about anything!

1.5 hours;
Limit: 20 participants/workshop.

Affordable, Custom D-I-Y Assistive Technology

Learn how to make your own custom assistive technologies (AT) including sturdy stylus; easy-grip for eating utensils, writing instruments and stylus; Adjustible Tablet Stand; and Privacy Screen.  We’ll share local and online sources for inexpensive materials, as well as sources for instructions to make other DIY AT.
