My Students

My students have trouble staying focused in class because they need more activity throughout the day.

My students are from low-income families in a poor part of an urban setting.

They are in close proximity to a prestigious university but few of my students think they can make it there. High levels of attention deficit disorder are prevalent in my students which limits their ability to stay focused during our extended class time.

My Project

These exercise ball chairs will allow most students to sit in a way that they can still be active while being able to focus on the learning in the classroom. These have become popular in elementary classrooms, but the students with the most challenges are in middle school. This will allow students to still be mobile and activate their cores while remaining in their seat and being able to concentrate.

These chairs will help students who sit in wood or metal chairs all day, the ability to be active while being able to focus on the lessons in class.

Students who have had difficulty concentrating will be able to continue movement while remaining in their seats. They will learn that they can be successful in school for the first time.
