Grade 4 Advanced German Group at H.I.S. is planning an initiative to promote the importance of making yourself visible in traffic. After they researched about the main factors of accidents in Heidelberg 2014 they found out that most of the accidents with bikes and pedestrians involved had to do with the fact that car and bus drivers couldn't see them early enough to prevent an accident. Students then researched about ways to make yourself visible and how to help young children understand that. Now they are working on different ways to promote this. Ideas are: video commercial, print commercial (posters and flyers) and to do experiments with our younger students to show how important it is to where reflectors on their coats etc.
