Protecting our kids from harmful radiation is easy.
You can do it. We can help.
Reducing radiation exposure in school classrooms is something every school can do at no cost and without affecting any tech-based learning or system performance. Why not do it?
Radiofrequency (RF) radiation emitted by all wireless devices was once thought to be harmless. Now thousands of studies, including a major study from the National Institutes of Health, are showing that exposure at levels below current FCC guidelines can have biological effects and trigger physical symptoms.
While federal agencies work to establish new guidelines for exposure, there are simple steps administrators can take that will dramatically reduce the amount of radiation in school classrooms.
This site contains links to scientific studies, practical instructions for reducing exposures, Best Practices for students and teachers and much more, Let us know how we can help you.

“We wired many of our school offices and classrooms with Ethernet, and were able to reduce the power output of our few wireless access points by 75% without any noticeable impact on performance. Even though we don't have all the answers, these precautionary measures make a lot of sense to reduce classroom exposure for our students and faculty."
- Frances Cameron, Head of School, The Hartsbrook School, Hadley, MA
“Based on our review of the health risks and the inadequacy of current standards to protect children, while the science evolves, we urge schools to consider minimizing or eliminating radiofrequency radiation sources and taking steps to reduce classroom exposure.”

“Current FCC standards do not account for the unique vulnerability and use patterns specific to pregnant women and children.”
