Kids and QS at Quantified Self Conferences: Cantor Soule-Reeves

June 27, 2018

Cantor Soule-Reeves presented his inspiring project, Fight for your Right to Recess  at QS17 in Amsterdam last year. With this project, Cantor proves how empowering data can actually be when analyzed.
Cantor is an 8 year old who goes to Richmond Elementary School in Portland, Oregon. The students of Richmond Elementary get 20 minutes of recess every day, however when it rains, recess is cancelled. And, it rains a lot in Portland—about 164 days a year on average. Cantor started tracking his steps on rainy days and sunny days and based on his data, he’s able to prove that every cancelled recess takes about 600 steps out of his day. This is significant for an eight year old. In this project, Cantor and Bethany (his mother) talk about the project and their plan to take the information to the school in hope to change his elementary school’s policy for rainy-day restrictions.
