CS Through Innovative Wearable Technologies

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Wait, you’re saying there is a way to integrate fashion design in CS? When observing a loss of interest in CS for girls, we introduced the LilyPad Arduino. What we found was much more than a reignited interest in CS for this population.
