ESN-EYE Lodz - Shape Challenge with ESN-EYE- Event

Due to the lack of sports motivation and unwillingness to take up sports activities, ESN-EYE Lodz decided to face the challenge and find a way to encourage students to work out. So, they came up with an idea to create a competition that did not require any special equipment and could have been done anywhere at any time. It involved using a path tracking application, for example, Endomondo, in order to create a shape on the map during the activity. More importantly, there were no restrictions on the type of activity. It could have been either running, walking, cycling, or any other type of sport during which the GPS could be used. As a result, people were choosing their preferred activities, as well as the shapes they wanted to create. Thanks to that, not only did they have fun, but also improve their mental and physical health.
