StandUp School

The need for an active study environment

Research shows that spending too much time sitting down is detrimental, to children and adults alike. It is important to be able to change position during the working day. StandUp School gives children an opportunity to switch between sitting and standing, and thereby creates a more active study environment. Stand up and work in school too!
