Electronic Fashion Camp

Amy Pickup, an EMAC grad, is putting on a 3-day camp for young girls interested in engineering, technology and fashion. Campers will discover how microcontrollers work and create their own electronic fashion project using the LilyPad Arduino, a sewable microcontroller that bridges technology and the arts.

The camp will be held August 1-3, 2012 at Oil & Cotton in the Bishop Arts District. We’re looking for smart and courageous young girls, ages 12-14, to come experiment with female engineers, technologists, media experts and fashionistas to create one-of-a-kind LilyPad Arduino projects. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
