Power Up for 30 is a program that provides training as part of a statewide initiative to combat childhood obesity. It is a program that encourages every elementary and middle school in Georgia to include an additional 30 minutes of physical activity each day. Power Up for 30 is integrated within PHED 4650 - Health and Physical Activity in Elementary Education (which is currently required in our B.S.Ed. with a major in Elementary Education), PHED 4689 - Teaching Internship Seminar (which is currently required in our B.S.Ed. with a major in Physical Education). A UWG Certificate is embedded in these programs by integrating the Power Up for 30 Training in PHED 4650 and PHED 4689 . Upon successful completion of the Power Up for 30 assignments, students will gain recognition of this UWG certificate on their final transcript.
