Dragon in the Attic is a fun, replayable game for 7–11 year old boys and girls about health and wellbeing choice. It gives players greater awareness and confidence.
Schools App Challenge is an annual competition to create a new health app 'designed by children, for children'. The App Challenge doesn't just stop on the screen or in the school playground. It's about how we encourage our youngsters to keep active, stay healthy and continue these behaviours at home and into later life.
