Summary

#equilts

Motivate deeper learning in art and engineering (or STEAM) with electronic quilting projects, for all ages. Come to this session to get practical advice on integrated curriculum design from an engineer and teacher team. Hear about the predictable ways to scale difficulty for students with different needs. Check out example LED light-up quilts powered by Arduino, batteries, and sensors. We will describe the process for developing such quilts, from inspiration to final display. Each step requires practicing concepts in Art, Design, Physics, Math, Engineering, Computer Science and Technology to progress. We suggest a general lesson plan that can be adapted for different time frames.
