Come and make your own fitness tracker that will be yours to keep. Learn from a professional personal trainer about how important it is to keep moving!
This workshop is based on the 2017 4-H National Youth Science Day challenge which is called “Incredible Wearables”. It is a hands-on project that challenges young people to use the engineering design process to build a wearable fitness tracker. The experiment was designed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Cooperative Extension. Through the challenge, young people will learn how circuits, sensors and health data can be blended with fashion to create a viable wearable tech product.
Incredible Wearables allows youth to work together to design, build and refine a wearable fitness tracker that is easy-to- use and aesthetically appealing. Incredible Wearables will teach youth a wide variety of skills related to engineering a wearable device, including building circuits, integrating sensors, designing a viable product and interpreting health data.
