My Students

My students are inner-city students attending a High School in Chicago. The majority of students are on free or reduced-price lunch and come from impoverished areas in the city. Our students are mostly African-American with a small percentage of Hispanic students. Athletics in our school is a growing endeavor as we are a relatively new school. Our school has only been open for 6 years. Because of that, our budget for athletics is not a high priority and we get little to no funding. Our students are excited about extracurricular activities but lack a great deal of resources to make them successful at these activities.

My Project

Donations to this project will help us raise fund to buy a state of the art timing system to measure performance in the sport of Track and Field. Measuring performance will allow us to gather data and track each athlete's progress. This will help us early on in the season to test athletes on their abilities and also later in the season to gather data on their progress towards improvements. We are still a growing program that is starting to experience success. To reach the next level of success, gathering data on athletes abilities will be crucial. This system will allow us to gather data more effectively and accurately while giving athletes immediate feedback. Specifically, the equipment is an electronic timing system that will accurately measure athletes speed to a hundredth of a second. It will also eliminate human error from the equation as well. We will also be able to time multiple athletes at the same time. This will directly impact our schools' boys and girls Track and Field team.
