Martin Middle School in North Carolina, USA has introduced pedal power into their classrooms to get pupils to focus more. Bike pedals have been put under the desks as a way to divert students energy.
Bethany Lambeth who teaches maths at the school said it has led to a significant increase in their performance and grades.
“Because students are sitting still all day long they start to get restless and start tapping their desks and their feet are moving about,” she said.
Having the quiet bike pedals under the desks allow students to use up that energy, and at the same time focus on class.
What you do guys think? Should we bring this to New Zealand?
