Animated LED Necklace


Wearable electronics are growing in popularity these days, and here’s a chance to create one yourself. Campers will get to make some really cool wearable electronics with customized animations. Campers at the Wearable Electronics Station will solder together a matrix of 64 LEDs to a tiny PIC microprocessor.  Then they’ll program that processor using custom software developed for this station.  It’s a really fun project that allows for a lot of creative expression!

**New & Updated this year!!** Now students will solder their animated LED to a circuit board with a customizable 3-D printed case and they’ll be able to program it at home with a phone, tablet or computer!
