Wristbands with unique ID numbers are distributed to each visitor inside the Hall of Human Life. These wristbands allow visitors to scan into each Link Station activity to anonymously log and compare their data with others. The data and graphs are accessible both in the exhibit and right here, online!
To view your data online, type in the eight digit number located directly below the barcode on your wristband. Have multiple IDs? Separate them by commas to view their data all at once! (example: 0000000, 1111111, 2222222)
