THE CHALLENGE
In this 2017 National Youth Science Day challenge, youth will design and build their own low-cost wearable health monitor following the engineering design process. The health monitor will consist of a small computer called the ESP8266 (or, colloquially, ‘The THING’), a pulse oximeter, and a tilt sensor (which can be used as a pedometer).

All are welcome to try the experiment. Ages 5-18 years old.
If you love science and experiments than this the event for you!

To register call 410-887-8090 or for more information.

GOALS, OBJECTIVES AND OUTCOMES
1. Design and build a functional fitness tracking prototype device.
2. Apply the engineering design process (design, build, test, refine) to technology product creation.
3. Learn about human health and how it can be tracked and improved using technology.
4. Understand the vast potential of wearable technology by learning how physiology and technology can work together.
