Gridiron Rescue: One Health Football Technology Project

One Health is a collaborative effort for medical professionals and researchers to share mutually beneficial knowledge and information regarding animals, humans, and the environment.

This project focuses on the real world application of students creating wearable devices that monitor football player performance and help prevent injuries.

Following the Engineering Design Process, students are tasked with the objective of incorporating a wearable device with nanotechnology into the design of the football helmet to help teach proper body positioning while also helping to prevent spinal, head, neck, heat and cardiovascular injuries and illnesses. Students will utilize 21st Century skills and technology, cross curricular activities (STEM), differentiated lesson choices, global applications, team collaboration, communication and presentation skills. CTE subjects include business, marketing, family and consumer science, and tech ed.
