Human Performance Challenges
The human body is an incredible machine. Every day we test it by running, jumping, stretching, and reacting. For the body to respond and do what we ask of it, we use a complex system of different muscle groups, as well as nerves running throughout the body and connecting to the brain.
In this activity, students design a series of challenges to test their body's performance in a variety of ways.
This is a recommended post-visit activity to Science World at TELUS World of Science. It's related to the BodyWorks human performance exhibits.
Students will be able to:
- Make predictions, describe the steps of an experiment, and record their observations.
- Relate the function of their muscular and nervous systems to their performance.
