Target Audience

High School students.

Description

Join AHEC and Engineering World Health for a virtual engineering program! In this program students will learn about electronic components, explore the relationship of light, color, and how it relates to heart rate, and build their own Optical Heart Rate Monitor. We will also discuss engineering careers, healthcare delivery in low-resource areas, and non-profit healthcare work.

Please note: Your mailing address and email will be shared with a third party who will send your program kit 3-5 days prior to the program.
