Active Science for Kids
This pilot program, funded by a grant from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services and the University of Massachusetts, set to reinforce the theory that children learn better when provided the opportunity to integrate physical exercise into the lesson. With schools reducing gym and recess periods, it is critical for educators to have the ability to improve learning with less resources.
Active Science integrates STEM learning with movement by having the children exercise and monitor their steps, movement and heart rate and then analyzing that data in math and science classes.
