Electronic textiles, oreTextiles, is one of the next steps toward making everything interactive and this course aims tointroduce learners to the first steps of developing their own wearable technology devices.After completing a series of introductory eTextiles projects to gain practice in necessary skills,students will propose and design their own eTextiles projects, eventually implementing themwith Lilypad Arduino components, and other found electronic components as needed. The scopeof the project will depend on the individual’s prior background, but can include everything froma sweatshirt with light‐up turn signals for bicycling, to a wall banner that displays the current airquality of the room, to a stuffed animal that plays a tune when the lights go on, to whateverproject you can conceivably accomplish with Lilypad Arduino inputs, outputs, and developmentboard in a relatively short time period.This class is intended for students with no computer programming background, and so a largeportion of this class will focus on the development of these skills.Learning ObjectivesBy the end of this course, students will be able to:1. Select appropriate stitch styles and sew two sewable items to each other with that stitch,and secure with knots.2. Diagram, via paper prototypes, a variety of functioning circuits for physical computing.

3. Implement electric circuit diagrams using electronic components designed for textiles,using a variety of inputs and outputs.4. Program an Arduino to use a variety of inputs and output components, both analog anddigital.5. Design and create a creative eTextiles product that uses appropriate sewing techniques,simple & complex inputs & outputs, as well as novel Arduino code to transform thoseinputs & outputs.6. Apply appropriate debugging techniques that include incremental testing and helpseeking from peers, the Internet, the instructor, as well as other resources.TopicsCourse Topics can be found on the Schedule page.Course ComponentsThis course involves the following components: Lectures – we don't have a textbook, so lectures slides will be our main form of contentdelivery.In-Class Activities and Assignments – individual activities to introduce and practiceskills learned in class with immediate feedback. Some will be graded as homework, andsome will be participation-based.Individual Assignments – it's important to get concentrated hands-on practice with newskills. These individual assignments help you do this.Low-stakes Quizzes - will help determine where the class is on certain concepts. Theycan also be great for helping you self-assess what you need more practice with.Projects – larger projects will combine multiple skills into one assignment. These willtake more dedicated effort.Code Review – formative feedback on your code is useful for being a better programmer.TextbookThe course will rely heavily on online materials that will be provided as needed. The SparkFunTutorials on Lilypad will be of particular relevance: To start, all students will need (provided by instructor, unless otherwise noted):Available from SparkFun.com1. 1x Lilypad ProtoSnap Plus Kit (DEV-12922)2. 1x Lilypad Temperature Sensor (DEV-08777 )

3. 1x Lilypad Vibe Board (DEV-11008 )4. 1x Lilypad Tri-color LED (DEV-13735)5. 1x LilyPad Rainbow LED (6 Colors) (DEV-13903)6. 1x LilyPad Coin Cell Battery Holder - Switched - 20mm (DEV-13883)7. 1x Coin Cell Battery Holder – Unswitched – 20mm (DEV-08822)8. 2x CR2032 Coin Cell Battery (20mm) (PRT-00338)9. Conductive fabric (COM-14110)10. Depending on your proposed project, there are other components you may need but arenot supplied. Using just the above listed supplies you should be able to implement avariety of interesting projects.Other1. boxSome fabric to sew on (i.e., craft felt, cotton calico, an old T-shirt, other textiles)Non-conductive sewing thread, embroidery flossFabric Scissors (Do not use to cut anything other than fabric!!)Needle threadersDepending on your proposed project, you may require specific textile objects that will notbe supplied (i.e., Velcro, ribbons, more fabric, a shirt, a stuffed animal, a pennant, paintedcanvas, etc.). There is a small budget for these supplies, about 5/student.You may want to download the Arduino Desktop IDE, although the lab machines will have it:https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/SoftwareWe may use Fritzing to map out our circuits before building them.EvaluationStrive to do good work because you care about your own opportunities to learn!There will be graded assignments to provide summative feedback on your progress on courseskills. You should complete these assignments individually, without assistance from otherstudents. Class sessions will often include some time to work on these assignments, to providestudents timely assistance on their efforts. See assignment hand-outs for specific details.Participation and CitizenshipIn order to learn the most from our in‐person meetings, it is necessary to attend each session andto complete the assignments. Oftentimes, you will need to show your assignments in class, andso if you have not done the assignment, it will be difficult to discuss your efforts withclassmates. This category also includes cleaning up your workspace at the end of class andproviding respectful feedback to your peers.Grade Breakdown

Assignments Quizzes 40%Class Activities /Citizenship 20%Final Project 40% (proposal, prototypes, final project)SubmissionMany assignments are due the night before class. I will implement this as 11:59pm. In order tobe prepared to give you feedback, the instructor must have your submission in the morning.Submitting the day of class, just before class, or in class is therefore unacceptable, risking zerocredit.Each Assignment will describe the Submission process (sometimes we'll use Glow).Late work will be suspect to one letter drop in grade for each day that assignment is late, as wellas a 0 for the presentation portion of any assignment with a presentation component.Expected WorkloadAt Williams, we operate under the course unit system (rather than the credit hour system) as themetric required by many employers, granting organizations, graduate schools, and federalagencies. In addition to the 3 hours we spend together during our class meeting time, you shouldexpect to spend (on average) at least 10 hours per week on the academic and creative workrelated to class. If you find that you are spending considerably more (or considerably less!) timeto engage with this course academically, please contact me so that we can determine the bestcourse of action as you approach the materials. Should you have any additional questions aboutthe relationship of course units to credit hours, refer to the Office of the Registrar, whichexplains our course unit equivalency in greater detail.STUDENTS WHO NEED ACCOMMODATIONSIf formal accommodations need to be made to meet your specific learning or physical abilities,please contact me as soon as possible to discuss appropriate accommodations. Please also contactthe Director of Accessible Education, Dr. G. L. Wallace (413‐597‐4672) or the Dean’s office(413‐597‐4171). We will work together to ensure this class is as accessible and inclusive aspossible. Also, students experiencing mental or physical health challenges that are significantlyaffecting their academic work are encouraged to contact me or to speak with a dean. The deanscan be reached at 413‐597‐4171.THE HONOR CODEHomework and assignments are to be the sole work of each student unless the assignmentexplicitly states otherwise. Students may discuss issues related to an assignment, provided thatsuch discussions are cited in the material turned in. However, students may not collaborate on

designing or writing code. Uncredited collaborations will be considered a violation of the honorcode and will be handled appropriately. For a full description of the Computer Science HonorCode, please see and‐computer‐usage‐policy If indoubt of what is appropriate, do not hesitate to ask.DisclaimerThis syllabus is subject to change at the discretion of the faculty. Students will be notified ofsuch changes ahead of time via email.ScheduleCSCI103: Electronic TextilesOverviewPlease see the appropriate sub-pages under Assignments for additional direction aboutAssignments.Schedule (Readings, Assignments, Projects)Week 1Th 9/5 Welcome!
