The basic kit for beginners to learn about circuits has a databus with gaps and is connected to a power source. As the circuit is not closed the actuator patch (here an LED) won’t work.
Now the learners can close the gap and make the led light up by using various textile techniques (in the example sewing and glueing).
Or by adding switches to the circuit.
The circuit then can be attached to a piece of cloth or bag or anything else.
The more advanced learners will program a microcontroller that is connected to the bus in order to use more advanced sensor e.g. the stretch sensor.
The learner can either attach the sensor and actuators directly to the patch or put them somewhere else on a piece of close by e.g. using conductive yarn in between.
