SugarDe-Rush : Reducing the sugar intake (Project by students from HCI)

For the past 4 months, I have the fortune to be working with 4 brillant students, Glen Mun, Joseph Zhao, Sean Tay, Yong Zhi, from Hwa Chong Institution. They are working on a project called Sugar De-Rush. The aim of it is to raise awareness, educate the young and cultivate good habits. They came up with resource package which consists of workshops to Ai Tong Primary School, Information Card, Brochure, Windows Phone 7 Mobile Application.








I am glad that I have the chance to work with this group of young, determined and energetic guys on this project on their website and Windows Phone 7 mobile application and providing some inputs/feedback to their project along the way.

Their finals is on this Friday. All the best to you guys!

An extract from the website:
“We are a group of students from Hwa Chong Institution who are doing a project called Sugar De-Rush. The problem of high sugar intake among Singaporeans is a pertinent one. Research conducted shows that children consume more sugar than recommended. Project Sugar De-rush aims to raise awareness of the dangers of high sugar intake and educate children aged 9 to 12 years old to monitor their eating habits. We hope to cultivate a good habit in them when they are young so as to prevent them from suffering from diseases in the future. This alarming problem needs to be addressed and our project is a resource package to help raise awareness of the dangers of high sugar intake.”

Below is the interview they had with Dr. Kelvin Tan, Vice-President of Diebetic Society on why sugar is bad.

All the best to SugarDe-Rush!
