Safe Routes To School (SRTS)
Connecting the trip to school with Safety, Health, Community, Choice!
We are currently working towards implementing an SRTS program at a local elementary school that would one day improve the overall health of the children of West Lafayette while creating a stronger sense of community. This program is intended to be a pilot program that started at Glen Acres Elementary School. The goal is to expand to other schools in West Lafayette and eventually around the United States. The final product must be affordable and efficient. 150 students must be able to enter the school in the span of 20-30 minutes and our system must record how many student walked to school that day. The system must be safe, reliable, and durable in order to succeed in the task it must accomplish. It also must be an easily mass produced product since it is intended to be implemented in schools across the country.
