SPARTA,WI (WXOW)--Safety and prevention were the themes at a health fair for Sparta High School students Wednesday.
It was the first time the school held the health fair in conjunction with their Annual Wellness and Fitness Day. More than 15 different representatives from various health organizations in our area were there.
Some of them include Western Technical College Respiratory Health, Triple AAA driving Simulation, Mayo Clinic Health System MRI and X-Ray Diagnostics.
Many students used simulators from triple AAA that simulate driving and then asked to try and send a text message. Health teacher Robert Wetzsteon said the driving station was one of the more popular. Wetzsteon said the fair is not only beneficial for the students.
"It's valuable for us as teachers because we can kind of catch up on what is new, and what's on the cutting edge. I've never seen the simulator work and here we have it at the high school it's one of the coolest things I've ever seen,"said Wetzsteon.
Wetzsteon said many students will likely go into the health care profession and the fair provides a little glimpse into areas in which they could study. Wetzsteon said the students always seem to enjoy hands-on learning opportunities.
