#HourOfCode Free Library Workshops
Our Hour of Code Workshop at the Central Free Library of Philadelphia involved our “stitch cards,” which introduced individuals young and old to creating a basic circuit, with their own creative twist. Our team (Yasmin Kafai, Orkan Telhan, Barrie Adleberg, myself) came up with the designs, along with a couple of Orkan’s students. Orkan and his team made the final design and print. Barrie Adleberg led the workshop at the Library. As part of the Maker Celebration, organized by the library, participants were introduced to coding circuits and eCrafting with electronic textiles. Participants used conductive thread, LEDs and batteries to design their own constellations.
