Abstract

Over the last few decades, there has been a rise in the prevalence of overweight and obesity in American youths. This chapter describes the rationale for the virtual world features of an ongoing obesity prevention project that engages middle school aged girls in a 3-week summer science enrichment program. The Get in the GROOVE! program is designed to promote self-efficacy for healthy behavior change, increase health knowledge, facilitate healthy behaviors related to physical activity and nutrition, encourage a healthy body image, and promote the development and consolidation of a health self-identity. The virtual world component supplements experiences and reinforces curriculum and concepts learned in the physical world component of the program. Preliminary findings suggest that The Get in the GROOVE! program is a promising social environment to motivate healthy habits.
