The 2019 Integrated Product Development (IPD) competition challenged students to design a product suitable for use by pre-adolescent children, incorporating the use of active technology, to improve health maintenance and outcomes.
Can a new technology product actually help preteens learn healthy habits? Six University of Michigan student teams took up the challenge to design, build, and market brand new products to help preteens flourish in an increasingly tech-filled environment. Team Groovie won the inaugural Sarah S. Murphy Prize for exceptional outreach efforts during their product development process.
