LED Headband Project

Today, Leah, Audrey (my daughter), and I attended a fun workshop at the Generator, learning how to create a Rainbow LED Headband.

Although I did not have time to learn much about the actual code of this project (we uploaded John's program), I learned a little about the Arduino Nano, downloading and extracting files, and putting them into the correct libraries on my computer.  This might not sound like a big deal, but it was new to me, just as the soldering was for my daughter.

Another take away:  parts from China can occasionally be defective!

  1. Nice to meet your daughter! I'm looking forward to learning which tips worked are important for the beginners mind in learning to code. I've decided to start a series of blog post that introduce coding through eTextile. I am trying to think of my own experience learning to code and what things tripped me up, discouraged me, or turned me off. I think eTextile can provide an avenue to learn to code. We'll see, but I'm sure our collective experience will all contribute to what might be a series on learning to code. I'll post it here and also on my Learning With Lucie blog.

    How many people were there?
