Novel Exercise Systems for Teens

We have sponsored four freshman design projects in EID101 to create new economical exercise systems, targeted to counter the epidemic of obestiy in children.  These projects stem from collaboration with the B'N FIT program at the Children's Hospital at Montefiore.  Each system has a unique incentive, designed to encourage teens to exercise more often.
