The 'Green Microcycle' is a power-generating bike designed to help students learn about science and technology. Not only does the bike help students squeeze a little bit of exercise into their day, but it may also help them retain knowledge better than if they were just sitting.

Green Microcycle is a stationary bike designed by Adam Boesel. Children can sit on the bike and pedal while they read a book or learn a new lesson. Because the bike itself generates energy, it serves as a powerful tool for teaching children about renewable energy. With so many teachable benefits, the bikes have already been implemented as part of the Read and Ride program offered at some schools.

With more schools turning to new and innovative teaching tactics, this device provides a simple way for children to stay engaged both mentally and physically.
