Cwist (kids’ challenges with a twist) is a K-5 online education site that allows parents to use incentives—such as a new toy, a sleepover, or a skateboard—to motivate kids to complete learning and active play challenges. In the increasingly digital world, Cwist provides an online scoreboard to incentivize good behavior from kids.
