SNHU women's soccer alumni Brittany Croteau (Roberts) '12 is one of the teachers running the project, in which they spoke to the students about healthy living and asked them to think about they wanted to be experts in. After brainstorming, many of the students wanted to be an expert soccer player or coach.

The Penmen women's soccer players and coaches then went into the classroom and spoke to the students about what it takes to be an expert in the field. They discussed having a healthy lifestyle, including why eating healthy is important, and answered many questions about sleep, injuries and what fruits and vegetables are good for their bodies. The players were even able to convince some of the other students to want to be an expert in soccer.
