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.
