Powering Up Neurons
Students in the action-based learning lab use physical activity to anchor learning. Students are able to use the movement station to aid in learning concepts as well as give their brains a break from learning. The pedal desk feature allows students to focus on academics as well as being used with no academic content to focus on mindfulness and rhythm of motion, allowing the brain to have a physical activity break from class. All students on our campus engage in daily, planned brain breaks multiple times a day. Students love in-class physical activity breaks and powering their neurons up for learning!
