A handful of students are picked at random to demonstrate safe pedestrian behaviors. Sessions are 30 minutes and can accommodate one to two classrooms per session, depending on the size of the space provided. Multiple sessions can be held throughout the day. This format allows the entire student body to participate in the workshop on the same day!
