summary Physical Activity, which is essential for maintaining a healthy condition, is often a non-parallel particular in the curriculum of early adolescent education. Isolated to recess and gym class, or situated as separate extra-curricular activities, its metrics tend to be behavioral and external to cognitive activities. In order to address recent reductions in physical activity for adolescents, which the White House has interpreted as directly related to increased obesity rates in pre-adolescents over the last decade, a series of interventions within learning environments, class space, and facility syntax were developed to introduce activity breaks throughout the class day. This paper posits the findings from hybrid computer aided visualization and simulation tools used in defining adequate space for adolescent physical activity in the classroom. Primarily the research questions the volume of space attributable to each student based on the size of the classroom and number of students per academic year. The findings develop both the hybrid digital systems that map geographies of movement in adolescent bodies and work to facilitate an understanding of physical activity ecologies that can be prescribed to varying components in an educational institution. Additionally the findings contribute to multiple speculative apparatus intent on redefining class space, by situating certain physical activities with specific spatial modifications. In turn, establishing a formal agenda for situating activities in these conditions and determining the plausibility of devices in educational institutions that can encourage movement.
