We will also had a "Lunch and Learn" time for all students with Texas A&M University: Watch UR BAC (blood alcohol concentration).  Students were able to rotate through 2 areas during lunch time where received information about the effects of alcohol.  They were able to wear goggles that simulate the effects of alcohol and try to perform various tasks.

  • Bean Bag Toss area:  While wearing fatal vision goggles, which distort vision, student attempt to toss the bean bag to hit the hole in the board.
