This product is a watch that sets a daily challenge for children to fulfill throughout the day. These challenges can range from drinking 2 glasses of water to reaching out to help someone in the community to complementing a friend; the opportunities are endless. This watch shows the time and each day a task to complete appears on the screen. Once the task is fulfilled the child presses the green completion button. There is 1 challenge per day. Language settings are included.

This product will instill values of hard work and ethical descision making into children. We feel that by showing these children they can complete these tasks and instilling within them a feeling of accomplishment, the children will become more self-confident and will begin to set their own goals for themselves, rather than just the ones the watch sets for them. The watch will come with a bank of over 1,000 challenges that will increase in difficulty over time, ultimately progressing to teaching themselves certain skills and then teaching these skills to those in their community. 

Who will benefit from this idea and where are they located?

Children in small towns or villages anywhere and the communities they are apart of.

How could you test this idea in a quick and low-cost way right now?

It is possible to test the watch in our own community at the YMCA or Boys and Girls club(after school programs).

What kind of help would you need to make your idea real?

Programing help and production costs.

Is this an idea that you or your organization would like to take forward?
