My Students

The physical population of the school community displays lowered self-image and decreases aspirations when compared to those in surrounding areas. Many students live in substandard housing and their parents are receiving government assistance. Historically the area in which they live promotes lowered self-image, decreased academic achievement and lack of a personal belief system that offers success.

The area in which the students live has been economically disadvantaged due to major industries leaving the area and leaving the residents in poor working class status or unemployed.

The overall community struggles with an east-side, west-side concept, with students who live in and attend school on the east side area being considered substandard in both intellect and economics and physical abilities.

My Project

The blood pressure cuff will be used to monitor hypertension (high blood pressure); it is an important health issue in children, because of its association with obesity. By allowing students to visually see their blood pressure, it will allow them to know the risks. The students will also be able to explore their anatomy and take eye exams to assist them in understanding how their body works as a unit.

Children need to know the risk factors that cause disease so they can plan for a healthy lifestyle.

Education is a key component.

Students who suffer from asthma can use the Pulse Oximeter to monitor their oxygen saturation in the blood to help prevent disease.

Educational tools are necessary for visual learning as a means of educating students about healthy living.
