Wearable Tech (Ages 12-17)
This Katie Coders program will introduce the fundamentals of computational thinking and programming in C++. Integrating Arduino-based digital sensors into applications, we will transform our bodies into interactive canvases that we can use to both “know” and “create” in the world. We will design and fashion Wearables--but not just for bling-- around our breath, movement, temperature and position to learn more about our physical selves and the digital tools that increasingly shape our experiences.
Participants will learn hands-on C++ coding lessons in a scaffolded manner across the classes. By the end of the program, they will be able to imagine, debug, and build ways for Arduino-powered sensors to respond to and support human interests or needs. This course requires the purchase of an Arduino Adafruit ARDX kit and some additional components, which participants will keep so they can continue building after the course ends. This Wearable Tech course is appropriate for previous Katie Coders who have completed at least two seasons of classes. This class is also open to interested girls who have confidence in using Scratch to run a multiple variable program or have taken an Intro to Computer Science course.
Tuesday nights 6-8pm, from Feb 20th-April 17th
Program Cost: $300
