School Puts a New Spin on Tracking Orbit Time

A new Orbiter Lap Counter at Conn Active Learning and Technology Magnet Elementary integrates fitness and technology. Students’ laps are counted, along with time, and recorded as they run by the orbiter wearing electronic lanyards. The Orbiter, which was purchased as part of a grant from the John Rex Endowment, allows kids to track and access accurate data for individual and group fitness accomplishments.  

Conn Elementary is one of 15 elementary schools which received a three-year grant from the John Rex Endowment through our Healthy Weight Initiative.
