The TECHFIT project demonstrates the impact information technology has on our
world by inspiring the next generation of innovators to design and implement technology-based
fitness games that will get people moving and having fun while simultaneously and positively
improving their health.
In summer 2014, TECHFIT will offer its first set of six-day professional development programs for
teams of middle school teachers. One set of programs will be offered at the Purdue University
campus in West Lafayette, Indiana. The other will be offered at the College of Charleston in
Charleston, South Carolina.
Interested teachers and school officials should contact the project leaders using the

TECHFIT is made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation and is
administered and taught by Purdue's College of Technology faculty in collaboration with
faculty from the College of Charleston and experienced educational consultants.
