In three years, the Activity Works pilot program has spread to school districts throughout New Jersey and into New York City. It has been used in over 3,000 classrooms with 150,000 kids and has encouraged kids to burn over 2,100,000 hours through moderate-to-vigorous activity.
The Activity Works web site now brings the experience into kids’ homes. Kids can create avatars, set personal goals, and compete with their friends to receive rewards for success. Parents and teachers can work with kids to set healthy goals and keep them on track, inspiring the adoption of lifelong, healthy habits.
