Design & Wearable Tech Project

Tuesday, March 5th, 3:30 PM & Thursday, March 7th at 3:30 PM (Students: plan to attend both sessions!)

“Hack Your Pack” will help students learn the basics of design thinking and principles of diffusion & attachment while creating a wearable, functional project (a backpack) using technology and light. Students will create a project that will be useful for young adult lifestyles–lighting up the streets at night while walking, skateboarding, or riding a bike.

Join Maker Movement founders and leaders, makers and fashion designers on the cutting edge of functional creativity and exploration that will lead 12 brave students through a week of tampering with tech to create fashionable flair.

Interested students should register ahead of time. Teen Tech Week events are free to participate in and all materials and instruction will be provided.

Interested students need to commit to attending two, 2-hour sessions at The Sebastopol Public Library (March 5th and 7th from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm). A special “Show and Tell” session and reception/open house will be held for Teen Tech Week students and their families (and any student that would like to share a project that they have been working on) on Friday, March 8th, from 7:00pm-8: 30 pm at Chimera Arts, Sebastopol’s Maker Space.
