The Health Rocks! Carnival App and Website
Check it out! The Health Rocks! Carnival app is now available! The app, developed by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and piloted by Nebraska youth, is available free through iTunes and as a desktop game. The interactive game allows youth to test their knowledge of drug and alcohol facts, and health through carnival-themed games. The overall health status of their player is determined by how many health points they obtain, which will either turn their player into a superhero or an unhealthy person.
The Health Rocks! Carnival app is the first app created for a national 4-H curriculum, which is an extension of the current Health Rocks! curriculum and program initiative.
