New this year is the study of wearable technology. Wearable technology, or electronic textiles (e-textiles), combine engineering, craft, computing, electronics, and design. One aspect of e-textiles is conductive fibers which is a cross between the world of electric wires and the world of textiles, with attributes of each. Students will explore science and engineering topics such as physics, chemistry and team building.
