MakeFashion Edu

Abstract

9 year olds are designing wearable electronics to promote their beliefs. In humanities classes, math classes, and in clubs. We do need to bring in ethics, self agency, power tools, coding, and empathy…. but it’s less of a melting pot and more of an environment that finally makes sense.

Join our MakeFashion Edu discussion! We will make a video that is easy for you to scrub through to find different topics:

  *   Amateur Electronics Design in Shenzhen
  *   Project Based Learning in K-12 schools
  *   Advocacy through Fashion and Technology

Afterwards we will do a multi-room AMA on each of the topics, on our MakeFashion Edu Discord Server, with introductory instructions on lighting up ws2812b LEDs. We will have some development boards on hand to run your code on our ws2812b LEDs. Or you can just drop in to see demos and chat.

Our Discord Server: https://discord.gg/ejzcbNp


Full Description

In our video, we will have 3 speakers, around 10 minutes each, detail one area of the MakeFashion Edu program. Bios below, we all wear multiple hats, but are going to dive really specifically into our chosen topics. You don't have to watch every topic! The changeovers will be obvious so you can fast forward / rewind to hear just the stuff that you like.

Afterwards we will do several text-chats on specifics of each topic. The speakers will be there, but also additional MakeFashion Edu staff and community members. So you can get specific questions answered! In the chat rooms you can also send "code" from the video workshops.

Video Workshops: We will setup two video-chat channels to work on. One will be education and advocacy focused, and the other is focused on using "development boards" like the micro:bit. We are going to walk everyone through how to get started on these boards, go through some code together, and get willing participants to create some code. The code can be tested virtually, but we will also have you send the code to us and we'll upload it to our real boards, and show you the results on video chat!
