TAMPA, Fla. - Fifth-grade students at Carrollwood Day School in Tampa used a virtual reality driving simulator.
The simulator was provided by AT&T. The company hopes to save lives by sending a message that when it comes to texting and driving, it can wait .
A fifth-grade class at Carrollwood day school studied the social issue of texting and driving. It was a project the students had to complete this past semester. Those students presented research results to their high school classmates.
Students also heard a first hand account from Steve Augello. He's a Spring Hill parent who lost his daughter in a texting related accident.
