Fishing's Future - How Tim Doelger is Using Technology to Connect Youth with the Great Outdoors | Shaped by the Sea
Screen time to sea time: Can gaming bring kids to nature?
Today's youth are more engaged with technology than ever before, but does this mean they're bound to lose touch with the natural world? Or, can cell phones and social media be an opportunity to bring the wonder of outdoor spaces to a greater diversity of students? On this episode of Shaped By The Sea, Brian Yurasits chats with Tim Doelger, the CEO and Founder of TruFishing, to explore how we can transfer 'screen time' into 'sea time'. Tim's mobile app is designed to gamify recreational fishing, capturing the attention of the next generation and getting kids hooked on the sport. There's nothing as timeless as the memories we create while out on the water with friends and family, and modern technology allows us to capture these moments like never before. All it takes is one fish to turn anyone into a lifelong advocate for the ocean.
