Sew Alive! lets kids imagine and construct their own light-up soft toy. The craft activity addresses my early question: How might I teach kids STEM through sewing skills? And sewing through STEM? Through research into the kids sewing crafts and circuit-making markets and feedback from parents, teachers, and children, Sew Alive! proposes an opportunity for kids ages 8-12 to learn sewing and basic electronic circuitry in a way that is creative, open and adaptable.
