Cantor Soule-Reeves

Cantor Soule-Reeves 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 canceled. 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 canceled recess takes about 600 steps out of his day. In this project, Cantor and Bethany (his mother) talk about the project and their plan to take the information to the school in hopes to change his elementary school’s policy for rainy-day restrictions.
