What the program is like?
This program’s purpose is to make kids more active and minimize the damage to nature. It first started with limited people but right now over 37 schools and so many states are actively using this application. This application was for the bikers at first but now it is for bikers, walkers and skaters. A volunteer parent everyday checks up their bikes or skates so the only thing kids should do is park their bikes.
Who can use this app ?
Bikers, skaters and walkers.
Why did they change the name ?
They changed because they didn’t want a similarity with the word ‘freak’ it wouldn’t be nice for the kids and parents. People mispronounced the name often. It should be similar to biker but they pronounced like a speaker. They chose Boltage because they wanted a name that encourages kids. Freiker was representing biking but there are kids who use this app but don’t ride bikes like walkers and skaters so they didn’t want to exclude them.
Why they started it?
They were trying to get their kids to bike to school so they created punch cards.
How the parents made changes to the product?
They added barcodes to every kid’s bike. They created an application for walkers too. They are helping kids to learn how to read or they are helping them with their other activities
