4‑H National Youth Science Week - Incredible Wearables

National Youth Science Week: Will take place October 2-6.  The 5th and 6th grades in Ashley and Wishek and the 4-8 grades in Zeeland will be doing the experiment “Incredible Wearables".  Exact dates and times have yet to be determined

This year’s challenge, Incredible Wearables, gives young people the opportunity to use the engineering design process to build a wearable fitness tracker that will help people lead healthier lifestyles. Along the way, young people will learn how circuits, sensors and health data can be blended with fashion to create a viable wearable tech product.  The Incredible Wearables experiment is a fun way for kids to build wearable fitness trackers.

4‑H National Youth Science Day (NYSD) is the world’s largest youth-led science experiment.  It is an interactive learning experience that gets youth excited about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Every year thousands of youth take part in the National Science Challenge focusing on important STEM topics and issues.
