Whether you want to make a heated knee brace, an interactive wall display using light and touch, or a jacket with lights for biker safety, this class is designed to teach you the fundamentals to apply to your own projects.

We’ll also learn the basic terminology, giving you the tools to understand a basic tutorial from Adafruit or Sparkfun.
