Web Health Awards Honors JPL and Byrnes Health Education Center for iPad App

2/5/2015

LTBH_Healthy4MeApp_LandingJPL and the Byrnes Health Education Center were honored by the Web Health Awards Mobile for its iPad app called Healthy4Me.

Aimed at kids K-3, Healthy4Me helps students make good decisions, build self-esteem, respect others and prevent bullying. After taking the pretest, kids go under the sea to help some engaging underwater creatures stay healthy by making good decisions. A fun matching game helps reinforce healthy choices and build self-esteem before students take the posttest. The activities can be facilitated by a teacher in the classroom or used by the kids independently. The program is one of eleven eLearning kits available on LearntobeHealthy.org.

JPL has created hours of interactive learning programs for LearntobeHealthy.org dealing with health-related topics such as nutrition, stress, and smoking prevention and has worked in partnership with the Byrnes Center for more than a decade. The Byrnes Health Education Center plans to work with JPL to create an Android version of Healthy4Me and would like to produce additional apps in the future.
