The My Sports Pulse project combines mobile and web technologies, STEM education, and a sports theme to create an innovative approach to bolstering understanding and interest in science and mathematics fields. Students can register with the My Sports Pulse program to receive questions, presented within the context of sports scenarios, about subjects such as physics, nutrition, algebra or geometry. Questions are delivered through text messages or email, and can also be accessed and answered directly through the My Sports Pulse website. As students answer questions, they earn points in various knowledge areas and build up their own avatar to compete with other students and schools.

The My Sports Pulse program has been piloted with several schools inside and outside of the US, with promising results. We are constantly exploring new types of STEM challenges and delivery methods to expand and refine the program. For more information, including how to sign up or become a sponsor, please visit the My Sports Pulse website.

Children play the role of an aspiring superhero training to be accepted into the superhero academy in order to begin cultivating their super powers. Before being admitted, however, they must prove their resolve by completing a series of exercise and nutrition related missions around their neighborhood. After entering school, they will find challenge in thwarting the plans of the various villains working against them.

The Mixed Emerging Technology Integration Lab (METIL) has partnered with the Regional Extension Center at the College of Medicine (REC-COM) to work with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes in the form of a campaign known as Million Hearts™. Our responsibility was to provide a learning campaign using social media, mobile technology, email, video and print media to aid the efforts of the Million Hearts initiative to educate the American public and healthcare providers how to prevent, manage and care for cardiovascular disease.
