A workshop with Code/Art, plus a portrait contest!
In December we had the great opportunity to host an online workshop with Code/Art, a non-profit whose mission is "to increase the number of girls – particularly underrepresented minority girls – studying computer science " Our goal was to introduce coding to kids in a way that was accessible and fun.
We met on a Saturday afternoon and everyone brought their Hello, World: Electronics kits to make a codable art at home. Using Arduino, conductive thread, and sew-able LEDs, we decorated tee shirts, teddy bears, pillows, felt, and other things we had at home with light up LEDs.
We sewed on our LEDs, and upload code from our computers to make them flash. We had so much fun we're going to do it again soon.
Code/Art has a very special contest they are hosting this month. It's a portrait contest. For more info on guidelines, theme, and deadline visit- https://code-art.com/
