Our mini:mu glove kits are a great way of using an interest in crafting and music to get some sneaky coding in! We've been running workshops for a while now, and have now adapted them for the classroom.
In this first lesson we make the glove and wire it up - in our experience this can vary a lot based on the student's fine motor skills and experience of sewing, so we've put some tactics in to the plan to help with that.
To support you, there is a video on how to sew, wire, and test the glove here:
