What does it take to design and build your own fitness tracker? In this national science day challenge, kids will use a basic three-step engineering design process to design, build and test wearable fitness trackers and adjust them depending on the results. Get ready to build your own fitbit-type device, test it, and collect data by jumping rope, hula hooping, dribbling a basketball or other activities that will vary your heart rate.
This activity has been developed for National 4-H Youth Science Day, an annual event that promotes hands-on STEM learning. Come explore wearable technology with us!
