About This Event
Learn how to glam up clothes by sewing lights into them! Students will bring in their own articles of clothing or use provided fabric, and will sew lights into it with thread that conducts electricity. Along the way, they will learn about sewing, circuitry, connections, polarity, and current flow. Students will leave with a light-up piece of clothing or decorative fabric cuff. M3 (Materials, Media, and Me) is Assemble’s summertime Saturday program, running from 1pm-3pm. It’s a free workshop for kids ages 5-10 to get to know the material world around them! M3 uses an educational approach known as STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). STEAM-based learning explores the similar ways that scientists, makers, and artists approach projects. At M3, students learn through experience as local experts guide them through the design process. Each week, a different artist or technologist will introduce a material, show students how they use the material, and lead them through a project.
