Short Summary

Fidgets2Widgets is a boredom-free zone where kids ages 9-14 learn technology skills in a holistic environment. We are a MinecraftEdu and Gamification Center where "Widgetarians" are engaged in learning 21st Century skills like Programming, Digital Citizenship and Information Literacy. Our mission is to integrate movement and exercise into our program by establishing a kinesthetic computer lab, replacing "old school" desks and chairs with cool pedal and elliptical desks.

What We Need & What You Get

Our Wish List: Ellipse Desk, Pedal Desk, Five-Person Pedal Desk and Virtual Tour Bike, all manufactured here in the USA by KidsFit in South Carolina! Please refer to the "Perks" section to see what you will receive for your support.


The Impact

The children who attend Fidgets2Widgets are highly intelligent, creative and technologically gifted. They spend a lot of time on electronic devices. Their lifestyles are often sedentary, leading to medical issues like obesity, diabetes, etc. At Fidgets2Widgets, we take "exer-gaming" breaks using XBox Kinect, ping-pong and yoga balls, but adding these cool pedal and elliptical desks would allow the kids to move while they are on the computer!  This equipment, manufactured in the USA by KidsFit, will outfit all the Fidgets2Widgets Centers as we expand. Please help make it possible to support our kids in being healthier and more well balanced.
