An App to Crack the Teen Exercise Code

from The University of Vermont

Pokémon GO has motivated its players to walk 2.8 billion miles. Now, a new mobile game from University of Vermont researchers aims to encourage teens to exercise with similar virtual rewards. The game, called "Camp Conquer," is the brainchild of co-principal investigators Lizzy Pope, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition and Food Science, and Bernice Garnett, assistant professor of education in the College of Education and Social Services, both of the University of Vermont. The project is one of the first in the area of gamification and obesity, and will test launch with 100 Burlington High School students this month. more
