The science of exercise

Seventh- and eighth-grade students at the Driscoll School in Brookline visited Northeastern’s Human Performance and Exercise Laboratory, directed by associate professor Carmen Sceppa and located in the Behrakis Health Sciences Center, on Friday as part of the school’s “Science Solstice” program. Students participated in a series of measured physical fitness tests to learn about the science of exercise. Gregory Cloutier, project manager in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, instructs students on how to use a grip strength measurement device, which can gauge overall strength.
