      Sqord is a wearable activity-tracking device made specifically for children. It couples the device with an online platform, where children can set up avatars and challenge one another as well as track their activity levels. Sqord awards points for various activities. Providence Alaska and the Anchorage School District have worked together to provide SQORD to teachers and students. The Institute of Social and Economic Research (ISER) is studying whether using SQORD is helping children become more active. The principal investigator is Mouhcine Guettabi. This presentation is of preliminary findings from the first year of the study.
