The Soft-Circuit Alien Project (6th Grade) Soft-Circuits taught in art class! Circuitry and electronics are introduced and taught in art class as a new medium for artists to use in order to enhance their art. Soft-Circuits are electronic projects where e-textiles (electronic textiles) are created using things such as conductive thread, L.E.D.s and LilyPads. Students created alien life forms that adapted to their assigned planets (from science class) and wrote articles and did research (in humanities). Students sewed their soft-circuits and created alien plushies with on/off LilyPad switches.
