Green spaces are good for students' brains

1 post in this topic

BARCELONA, Spain, June 15 (UPI) -- Green is good. Even after adjusting for differences in socioeconomic factors, as well as race and gender, schools with more green space featured higher-performing students.

Researchers in Barcelona followed more than 2,500 second, third and fourth graders over the course of 12 months. Students who were exposed to more greenery at school saw a small reduction in inattentiveness and sizable working (or short-term) memory gains.

 

The scientists used satellite data to measure greenness around students' homes and schools. Teacher surveys, class observations and testing helped researchers gauge student performance.
