What is it all about?
Nowadays high school students are under a lot of stress. They must navigate new academic challenges, a hectic curriculum and pressures to meet deadlines. Maintaining student well-being, both mental and physical, is more important than ever.
Schools must develop self-sufficient students who make good lifestyle choices. This allows students to transfer these skills into their everyday lives and nurture their health.
Sports, Science and Health LAB founded in Schildt Upper Secondary School is a functional and motivating space that encourages physical activity. The school has filled the space with equipment that support learning. The space includes a gym built in the hallway in the main floor and a multipurpose room. The multipurpose room also connects to a relaxation room.
The space encourages awareness and knowledge on health, performance and well-being.
Various equipment support learning: blood pressure monitors, a spirometer, heart rate monitors, stethoscopes and photoelectric cell equipment. The learning environment and measuring equipment enable action-based learning. The measuring equipment connects the learning contents to the students lives.
The body analytics are used during lessons, for example math and physics classes. Students gain a personalized education but also agency over their health and well-being.
