BENEFITING: Childrens Health Incentives Lab
Pedometers represent a potential method of providing positive feedback to engage in higher levels of activity. Integrating social media and competitive elements build additional incentives for student engagement. Evidence-based research has confirmed that targeted interventions and obesity screening can impact obesity outcomes in children.
Students will keep track of the number of steps they have taken over the course of this project. It is our hope that giving students the tools they need to set tangible activity goals will encourage a healthy, active lifestyle that will develop lasting habits. We are fundraising money for pedometers for students to use in their gym classes.
