TACC Podcasts show

Summary: Our technology is becoming more personal and wearable. Everything from fitness trackers, to sleep trackers, to heart rate headphones aim to keep vital information about us at our fingertips. In June of 2017 TACC hosted a summer camp for high school students to learn how to make and program their own custom wearable technology. It's called Code @ TACC Wearables. The Code @ TACC Wearables Camp guided 27 high school students from the Austin area in how to fashion wearable circuits that responded to things like light and temperature and were connected to the Internet of Things. Podcast host Jorge Salazar interviews Joonyee Chuah, Outreach Coordinator at the Texas Advanced Computing Center.
