OUR STORY

We are a Wearable Tech Design Studio offering educational workshops and products for exploring and creating wearable technology focusing on skill and knowledge development in simple circuitry, soft textiles, and design thinking. Hybrid learning experiences of coding, sewing, and design are aimed at beginner learners ages 6 and up.

 

The workshop series and maker kits broaden current S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning by providing learners with experiences that develop their creativity and logical thinking, enhancing their problem solving abilities. Additionally, educators can easily incorporate soft circuit design techniques into traditional classrooms.
