For the first time since 2019, the hands of kids were busy at work inside the Broomfield Library’s inventHQ for a summer miniseries.
A group of 11 students spent the week learning about wearable technology, and on Friday they each presented their projects showcasing their programmed simple circuit and how it works.
University of Colorado Boulder Research Assistant and Ph.D. student Chris Hill co-led the miniseries.
“We’re having students use these custom-built prototyping tools that either (fellow co-leader) Michael (Schneider) or I designed to help the students prototype circuitry,” Hill said Wednesday. “Right now, we’re working on design, working on code and circuitry and making sure everything works well. (Then they will) sew it on a banner or flag or canvas bag.”
