Use the e-Textiles-in-a-Box tutorial and get ready to teach young people about electronics and computing. Based on the Computational Textiles Curriculum and Sew Electric from MIT, e-Textiles-in-a-Box provides instructions for sewing soft circuits and programming an Arduino microprocessor on the way to creating a bookmark book light and an interactive felt monster that lights up and sings. NCWIT is pleased to offer e-Textiles-in-a-Box in cooperation with the MIT High-Low Tech Group, and with funding from the National Science Foundation.

Introduce the project ahead with this short video.

Note: NCWIT no longer offers sample kits. Please refer to page 9, the Materials Reference section of e-Textiles-in-a-Box (PDF) for information on ordering your own.

Please let me know if there are any additional sample kits. I would like to use this activity for a female engineering recruiting event.

We offer one kit per user. If you have not requested one before we would be happy to send you one.

The link to the form to request an e-textiles kit does not seem to work. Could you please let me know if you are still offering this?

These are still available. We are fixing the issue with the form. Please write to me at jane(dot)krauss(at)ncwit(dot)org and I will contact you as soon as the request form is properly synched up. Thx. Jane 

The link is remedied!
