Wearable technology integrates electronics, sensors and processors into our clothing and accessories. Today, we can increasingly put smaller and less obvious electronics into everyday objects such as sunglasses, watches and other wearable items.
Wearable technologies will often have sensors which collect useful data such as heart rate, GPS coordinates, sound recordings, video and other information. They will also often have Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and can connect to other devices, apps and social media on the internet.
When designing your piece of wearable tech, think about…
Your video should be no longer than 2 minutes. We encourage you to create a drawing or even a prototype of your wearable tech to show us in your video!
Make sure you upload it to the Girls in Engineering Club Facebook group by Saturday 31st August, and you’ll have a chance to win prizes for participating!
(Don’t have Facebook? Email a link to your video to firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll still be in the running to win prizes!)
