My Students

We have a phenomenal group of students at our middle school. We are located in one of the poorest counties in the state of Wisconsin. Many of our students are on the free/reduced lunch program and rely on the school to help meet some basic needs.

Our students are known for being kind, honest, and helpful.

We have a give/take/borrow closet for students in need of clothing that is frequently replenished by other students in the school who have extra clothing to spare. They are a community of students in the truest sense of the word.

My Project

Our physical education classes have recently been able to get heart rate monitor armbands. In order to use these armbands fully, students need to see their heart rates in real time displayed from a projector and make necessary adjustments based on their target heart rate.

We are looking to get a quality short throw projector that would work well in a gym setting so that our students can see their heart rates while they move.

An Epson BrightLink projector would accomplish this goal, and allow our students to incorporate technology and analysis in physical education. Students can make inferences of their aerobic capacity, set goals for workouts, and make adjustments as needed to stay in their target heart rate zone. This will allow our students to make improvements in their overall wellness.
