OMAHA, Neb. — Driving, itself, can be dangerous, but when you add distractions, it can be deadly. PEERS Foundation teamed up with State Farm Insurance
PEERS Foundation and General Motors Teach Teens Dangers of Distracted Driving With Augment Reality Simulator
New simulator to travel to 50 Michigan high schools and provide interactive distracted driving prevention education. GRAND RAPIDS, MI – The PEERS Foundation in partnership
I had a very very pleasant experience with the staff from Peers. The augmented reality really gave our students a great experience to be behind the wheel and see the effects of driving while distracted, whether it was a phone or others talking and commenting. I definitely enjoyed the experience and I know the students did as well.
I honestly didn’t know how our students would respond to this opportunity. This major issue is too important, and the offer was too good, to turn down. I actually teach a Bible class later in the school day, so I asked for feedback from students who had experienced the simulation, and I received enthusiastically positive responses. One unanticipated outcome — the 10% discount on insurance when a student participates — only sweetened the feedback. Please keep up your great work with an issue
I was so impressed. What you do will save the lives of many young people.
Thank you for the wonderful job Mike and his team did. The students really enjoyed the presentation. I heard many positive comments and they seemed very engaged. I also appreciate the fact that your team did a great job being on time and setting up.
Our kids were highly engaged and the information was well received. I appreciated it so much and hope we can have another outing next school year!
We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from both our students and teachers about both the presentation and the experience with your team. Our kid shad a great time, all while being educated.
Mike and his team were amazing to work with for the General Motors UofM recruiting events. Mike and his team were engaging, flexible and educated on the simulator.
That crew that came in was professional and efficient. They did a great job with a serious topic while at the same time providing a unique activity that engaged the students.
Thank you so much for having PEERS Foundation come work with our students at Laurens District 55 High School. It was a once in a lifetime experience and we know our students learned so much from the opportunity.
This was a win, win for all parties. The staff of PEERS Foundation had a great rapport with our students. The texting and driving experience is a must for all new drivers.
