The Life Education Center is a mobile classroom which uses technology and teaching aids to deliver health and wellness instruction across Southeast Kansas. Focusing on the negative effects of alcohol and drugs, and the positive effects of diet, exercise, and overall healthy living, the LEC’s concentrate efforts with the help of Lou-Wheeze, which helps students get a better understanding of what happens when you smoke; TAM, the Transparent Anatomical Mannequin which shows student’s locations of body organs; as well as the most popular feature, Harold, a hand puppet, which sees approximately 8,000 students annually and talks to them about healthy living and reminds them that they are a unique, one of a kind individual.
