My friends from Oil and Cotton just sent me some info about a rad fashion and technology camp… It looks seriously incredible. So much so, in fact, that it (almost) makes me wish I were 12 again…
Here are the deets:
Etiquette Creative and the Design Your World team are hosting our very first Electronic Fashion Camp! In this three day, hands-on camp, girls will learn about fashion, electronics and coding using the LilyPad Arduino. Girls will discover how microcontrollers work then create their own electronic fashion project using the LilyPad Arduino, a sewable microcontroller that bridges the traditional technology and arts divide.
The camp will be held August 1-3, 2012 at Oil & Cotton. We’re looking for smart and courageous young girls, ages 12-14, to come experiment with female engineers, technologists, media experts and fashionistas to create one-of-a-kind LilyPad Arduino projects. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Registration is $95 per girl for the entire three day camp plus materials, payable online or by check. Any parent volunteers/chaperones that would like to stick around and help out may do so for $35 to cover the cost of food.
