Traffic Study

On Wednesday 3 February , the Grade 7 Individuals and Societies students took part in a traffic study in Mae Rim. The students are currently studying a unit on the challenges facing modern Thailand and road safety is a continuing concern. According to the World Health Organization, Thailand currently ranks number two in the world for traffic fatalities with 36.2 deaths per 100,000 population. Ajarn Kirsty and Ajarn Robert felt it was important that students get a first hand view of actual road conditions.

Prior to the trip students developed research questions, data collection methods and made predictions about what they might discover.  In Mae Rim, students tested and refined their methods before collecting data on topics such as traffic volume and composition, helmet usage, vehicles running amber and red lights and other unsafe practices. Students are currently working on interpreting the data and it is hoped that they will be able to report back to the community on their findings.
