Students Get Smart
Science Night at Adams Elementary (Santa Barbara, CA) encourages students to discover, play, explore and learn about the importance of science and engineering in daily life. BIOPAC set up a BioNomadix Wireless Smart Center to allow students to record their heart rate. Electrodes were placed on students and leads were connected to a wireless transmitter that sent data to a computer running AcqKnowledge for Smart Center software that displayed heart rate data.
Adams Science Night offers free and interactive science and engineering activities for students, families and friends. In addition to seeing their heart rate at BIOPAC’s wireless ECG station, participants could explore human anatomy and learn about all the parts of the brain, explore circuits and biomedical tools, zoom into nanoscience, explore laws of physics, create videos, view the world through infrared cameras, peek out into the night sky with telescopes to reach the stars, meet native and exotic animals and insects, learn about local tidal animals and the marine sanctuary.
