Goal: By the end of the course, students will be able to describe the maker movement – from conception to projected future – and build a personalized health metric display systems to improve one’s health.
Technical Expertise Expectations: This is a hands-on class. Students are expected to have basic programming skills and a willingness to tinker. Students will push the bounds of their knowledge by prototyping quickly and failing often (failing is okay!).
Students who complete the course should be able to:
Discuss past, ongoing, and emerging research in the maker movement/craft technology.
Design and build electronic systems to display health metrics.
Program electronic systems to personalize health metric displays.
Integrate electronics, code, and physical construction to make a cohesive health metric display system.
- Design a small study to evaluate the health metric display system.
