Programme Details

What if your clothing could change color to complement your skin tone, respond to your racing heartbeat, or connect you with a loved one from afar?

Welcome to the world of shoes that can dynamically shift your height, jackets that display when the next bus is coming, and neckties that can nudge your business partner from across the room. Whether it be for fashion, function, or human connectedness, wearable electronics can be used to design interactive systems that are intimate and engaging.

Wearable Electronics is intended for those with an interest in physical computing who are looking to create interfaces or systems that live on the body. Perfect for makers new to wearable tech, this course introduces you to the tools, materials, and techniques for creating interactive electronic circuits and embedding them in clothing and other things you can wear.

The course features experiments to get you comfortable with the technology and then invites you to build upon that knowledge with your own projects. Fully illustrated with step-by-step instructions and images of amazing creations made by artists and professional designers, this course offers a concrete understanding of electronic circuits and how you can use them to bring your wearable projects from concept to prototype.

I learnt how to programme games. It was a very interesting experience learning how games are made although it could be confusing but my instructors put me through. The last summer camp I attended has to do with academic work but this is different. I had fun and made new friends.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn the basics of Electronics and Microcontroller Circuit Design & Coding. It was very educative.

Shalem Onyegbula
I learnt how to design my own mobile games, while doing that I also learnt how to code. It was fun, exciting and interesting.
