We held two sessions of the ThinkFast Interactive program at Cookeville High School. Our team's thoughts were that since we are such a big school, we would target the 600 plus freshment who are about to begin driving and the 500 plus seniors who are about to go out into the real world and make some decisions. The ThinkFast Interactive program was designed to educate teens by connecting the awareness, and prevention messages directly to them via wireless controllers in an interactive and cool manner. Unlike more traditional awareness programs used, such as lectures, this unique method is effective in breaking down the typical barriers that students often create to insulate themselves from the message. We heard from teachers supervising the program that the students loved the ThinkFast program and were appreciative that we brought it to them.
