The Gerontech 201 course aims to develop students’ interest in STEM-related subject areas, while raising their awareness about Healthtech and Gerontechnology. Through project-based learning with Arduino and ESP32, students can understand programming concepts for different technology applications. They will also gain hands-on experience in developing their Healthtech prototype smart watch using the skills learnt in class.
1. Programming blood oxygen sensors and heart rate sensors to collect health data
2. Learn to use the Arduino IoT functions for smart home control
3. Learn to program Wi-Fi functions for communication control
4. Make a Healthtech Smartwatch prototype using the combined knowledge from the course
