Commit to Be Fit (C2BF) unveiled a brand new alternative seating classroom to Rappahannock County High School students on Wednesday, August 15. While most traditional classrooms are equipped with rows of desks and chairs, this new classroom features a variety of workstations that allow for purposeful movement throughout the class period. Students can balance, pedal, bounce, stride, stand, and move side to side while engaging in classwork. The classroom, referred to as the neuronasium, is based from the latest brain research that shows a link between movement and learning by increasing attention span, strengthening memory, and boosting brain function.
