The Science of Essential Balance is a physical education curriculum intervention research sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The goal of the research is to develop and field-test the efficacy of an innovative physical education curriculum that teaches adolescents the knowledge and skills needed for a caloric-balanced life. The research is longitudinal in design, from 2018 to 2023, and involves more than 20 high schools in the Piedmont-Triad region in North Carolina.
Scope of CCI Lab Work:
The CCI Lab will help integrate the school intervention research project with Google Cloud Platform. Collected data in Cloud Firestore will be converted to CSV format and stored in a location that can be easily accessed by approved researchers who can then download and perform analysis.
