4‑H NYSD 2017 - Incredible Wearables

We are pleased to introduce the 2017 4‑H National Youth Science Day challenge: Incredible Wearables.

Developed by the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, the Incredible Wearables kit is a fun way for kids to build wearable fitness trackers.

The kit is perfect for classrooms, clubs and at-home use. The 70 to 90-minute hands-on project is suitable for 4th to 12th graders.

Each low-cost kit can serve up to 10 kids at a time and is reusable.

Through a generous partnership with DuPont, the 4‑H Mall is offering one free kit for every two purchased! This deal is available while supplies of free kits last, or until June 1, whichever comes first. Free kits are limited to five per customer.
