Our finished your product!

I am excited to finally see my lesson plan in action. I have tried various components of my lesson plan over the course of the school year making sure to try and work out any kinks other educators might encounter. When I was having problems getting Arduino to recognize the serial ports, I reached out to many of the engineering and technology educators in my district seeking support and assistance. Many of my colleagues are excited to see “My blinking shirts and bags” in action. I will definitely be using the finished products as props when promoting my fashion merchandising program to potential students.  I would also like to be able to feature some of my student projects in the Maker community to inspire other novice Arduino users and fashion and entrepreneurship educators. My students have learned about and are utilizing the engineering design process, 3-D printing, and coding.  What excites me the most is my students are excited about innovation and technology.
