"HANDS ON STUDENT SIMULATION"
The Hands On Student Simulation is a way students can gain real-life exposure to the perils of impaired driving without being put at risk. The driver wears vision impairment goggles that simulate the experience of being impaired. A trained mentor is present and assists with the "impaired" student driver. The student drive experiences what it is like to operate the vehicle while "impaired".
Students under the supervision of the School Resource of School Safety Officer will be allowed to participate. The target audiences are middle school students primarily 8th grade.
The program is designed to make students aware of the dangers of alcohol.
Each student must have a permission slip signed in order to participate in the program.
Each school or group experiencing the simulation will need to provide volunteers to work the event. Their responsibility will be to help with set-up, operation, and break down of the course. There will also need to be someone in charge of the movement of students to insure their safety and participation. At least one local law enforcement officer must also be at the event to help and interact with the student participants.
The Hands On Student Simulation program is designed to be used indoors. A gymnasium or other large room free of obstacles is required.
There is no cost for this site program. Advanced reservations are required to hold the simulation event.
