How can you become stronger and healthier?
How can you learn and remember more?

Students will choose one personal goal and one group goal.
Students create baseline measurements of where they start, develop a plan and chart their progress as they work to accomplishing these goals.
Teachers and parents can also join in, developing their own plans to accomplish their goals. It is important that students see adults working to achieve goals. And there is no better enforcement mechanism than a classroom of students looking over their teachers progress.
Experiment you enables students to use their own observations, learning and problem solving skills
