Michael -

We are doing it in a somewhat old school manner for a "be agile" campaign we are planning within our department. We will be using the tried & true Passport approach with folks earning points for participation in events over the campaign which can be redeemed at the end for token prizes.

How do you track student's points?
Is that done manually or you have a digital platform for that.

Its commonly known as the marshmallow challenge.
One video is here. My team used this once in our yearly team meeting workshop and showed this video after that activity
