At each school, the Vehicube team will raise student awareness about the benefits and pleasures of physical activity and healthy eating habits.
The Vehicube is a huge, specially-designed bus towing a bike studio. In the front portion of the caravan, students will take a nutrition workshop.
The youngsters will take part in activities centred on four tables with touch screens, 3-D food, an animated version of Pierre as a chef and a cyclist, as well as a grocery basket.
The bike studio, located at the rear of the Vehicube behind the bus, is set out with 14 exercise bicycles, each one featuring a high-tech screen that turns the exercise into a virtual race.
The world of three-dimensional animation will motivate the students to keep pace with the pack of cyclists, a press release from Conseil scolaire public du Grand Nord de l'Ontario said.
