Please join us for a showcase event featuring student projects from the 2021 Wearable Technology class!  (DS518) 

In Wearable Technology, students create innovative and experimental designs that integrate textiles, technology and the body. Students in the class explore new ways of integrating microcontrollers, sensors and actuators to build functional prototypes. Between learning skills in hands-on making, electronics and computer programming, students also get a crash course in the fabrication of technology-rich wearable devices. Projects generated in the course range from the pragmatic to the playful.  Some projects may aim to save lives while others provide new ways of looking at the world around us.

This event will be hosted in conjunction with the reception for the Interior Architecture 2021 Showcase in the Link (main lobby) of Nancy Nicholas Hall. Questions? Please contact Marianne Fairbanks (mfairbanks@wisc.edu ) or Kevin Ponto (kbponto@wisc.edu ).
