Hand Biometrics Technology

Electronic engineering hopefuls get hands-on with hand geometry and the technology of biometrics. After taking the appropriate measurement on their hands, they configure their personal hand geometry codes and compare them to classmates. A discussion ensues about whether or not using biometrics is an accurate way to provide identification in situations where security is important. For older pupils, consider staging a debate to argue whether or not this technology is useful and secure.
