One highlight from the two and a half hour activity was when the five students were able to finally connect the microchip and heart rate monitor to the computer using Bluetooth. They all jumped up and celebrated.
"It was a struggle and very hard working with a boy, but I had fun!" remarked one student. "Time just seemed to fly by."
This activity was sponsored by the UNL 4H Extension. The students who participated will now be able to teach this to their peers at the Afterschool Program.
