The session covered free-to-use resources, a range of project ideas, as well as taking a brief look at the use of microcontrollers and E-Textiles.

Julie Boyd's delivering a Teach Design E-Textiles workshop
Julie's E-Textiles projectsThe E-Textiles workshop was run by Julie Boyd, an E-Textiles consultant who writes our E-Textiles tutorials. After an explanation of what E-Textiles was all about, the teachers were able to make a simple circuit: an Electro-Fashion Switched Coin Cell Holder connected to a Sewable PCB LED using conductive thread. Plenty of examples of more advanced work were on display, giving teachers the opportunity to get inspiration for what they could do in the classroom. *E-Textiles Workshop photographs were taken by Paul Boyd. The day was wrapped up with a keynote speech by Keith Warren (from the Big Picture) on ‘Changing the Future’.
