Investigating physical activity with Terrific Scientific: joining the BBC to help kids learn about science.

Project Details

Description

The Daily Mile is a physical activity programme made popular by a school in Stirling. Each day during class time pupils run/walk outside for 15 minutes (~1 mile). We are currently evaluating the impact of the Daily Mile on health and well-being. This project supports a new collaboration between the researchers and the BBC. The project will examine the impact of short bouts of physical activity at different intensities. It will contribute to: teachers and pupils understanding of scientific methods; understanding links between physical activity, well-being and cognition; and will provide a very large amount of novel research data.
