Gaming techniques aimed at making better drivers

Driver in Making program plants the seeds of distraction free driving in younger kids.

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — It is not too early to plant the seeds of distraction-free driving in the minds of younger children.

They might not understand the term ‘distraction-free driving.’  One can call it ‘good driving’ and they will exactly know what we mean.  It is all part of raising responsible kids.

By using gamification techniques, Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation developed the Drivers-in-Making program for elementary school students. It consists of a two-hour gamified workshop facilitated by the foundation’s high school-based Distraction-Free Life Club members.
