The original SPARK PE study was launched by the National Institutes of Health to create, implement, and evaluate new and innovative approaches to physical education content and instruction, then test them in "real world" settings. SPARK PE was designed to be more inclusive, active, and fun than traditional PE classes.
Today, after lessons learned from more than 20 years of ongoing research and field testing nationwide, SPARK PE is the most researched and field-tested Physical Education program in the world – a true solution to our growing problem of overweight and obese children.
