This professional development resource provides teachers with the basic knowledge to deliver an e-textiles project in the classroom. The four lessons of varying duration cover:
• basic electronics with batteries and LEDs
• Using craft techniques to create wearable electronics
• Introductory programming with Arduino
The project serves as an adequate introduction to Arduino for novices. It explains the structure of an Arduino program including initialisation and the loop section. Variables are declared and used in programs, and a range of errors are understood and debugged.
