On 30 September 2017, Prime Minister (PM) Lee Hsien Loong praised SPOTTI, an interdisciplinary student-led mobile application aimed at battling diabetes. Two School of Sports, Health and Leisure (SHL) students presented SPOTTI to PM Lee, in the presence of over 4,000 Teck Ghee Constituency residents.

This location-based app aims to fight diabetes by enabling users to locate healthier food options and exercise programmes near them while supplemented by exercise video demonstrations.

SPOTTI is the creation of an interdisciplinary Final-Year Project (FYP) involving students from School of Applied Science (SAS), School of Infocomm (SOI), School of Management and Communication (SMC) and SHL students. Taking two semesters to create, this FYP is an industry collaboration with Teck Ghee Constituency in which most of the exercise videos were filmed.
