Around 83.2% of all 12- to 17-year-olds have a smartphone. Additionally, 73% of them are between ages 11 to 13, and 31% between ages 6 and 10. The overuse of mobile devices can be harmful to children’s health, as the more they use mobile devices, the less physical activities they do. STEM challenges are activities where students design and build solutions to problems using a combination of science, technology, engineering and math skills.
The smart solution
eesy-innovation worked in throwing module solution (smart ball) that kids could use in schools to check their performance in maths and physics classes. To cover the wide area of school field, eesy has developed wireless mesh network to get and process data from ball such as velocity, height and acceleration, combine them with recorded video of throwing and pass them to the Mobile App for visualization of results achieved. On this way children can better understand maths and physics terms in practise and see how to improve results while playing.
