BioLab Visit - Year 9 Principles and Training Class
This week, the Year 9 'Principles of Training' class was given the opportunity to explore sports science in the real world.
They were able to investigate how the body responds to exercise. The students were able to get into the laboratory and test each other, looking at skin temperature, heart rate and breathing rates to discover for themselves the acute responses to exercise.
They were also introduced to several career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The students enjoyed themselves, and were even able to test their own reaction times, using some excellent and expensive equipment.
A great day was had by all.
