Electronic Textiles for Exploring Computer Science with High School Students ...

NSF Awards: 1509245

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

Stitching the Loop presents an introductory computer science unit for high school students using electronic textiles, which are fabric-based crafts made with conductive thread, microcontrollers, lights, sensors, and other electronic components. Because of their links to fashion and wearables, electronic textiles have a broad appeal to young people. We piloted this unit with over 600 high school students and their teachers in LAUSD as part of the successful Exploring Computer Science curriculum that currently reaches ten thousands of underserved student in high schools across the country. Starting Fall 2018, the curricular unit including technical guide, standards references, and resource list will become available for free at www.exploringcs.org
