My Students

My students are the great students in the world; hard working and creative. We are a small school in the South Bronx with about 400 students. Our school services students from 3 years-old to fifth grade students. Many of our students are English as a Second Language Learners. All of our students live under the poverty level. Some live way below the poverty line struggling with basic needs. What our students lack in resources, they make up for in excitement.

My Project

Students at my school need physical activity everyday. Without an appropriate gym space the students will miss out on physical activity. The students need physical activity to live a long healthy life. The air conditioner will provide a space that will be a perfect temperature so students don't become overheated during activities.

An air conditioner allows the students a comfortable space to exercise.

Many of my students deal with asthma or other health impairments. Any issue with the temperature of the room might not affect you or me, but it would definitely affect them. This air conditioner is a must.
