Kinesiology Lab Days

We established Kinesiology Lab Days more than 45 years ago as an introduction to the then relatively new field of kinesiology — the science of human movement. Since then, the University of Waterloo has established itself as an international leader in kinesiology research and education.

This year, we are once again bringing our Kinesiology labs to your classroom!


Asynchronous labs for you to deliver to your class

Free | October 4 - November 12, 2021

Registration for instant access to the asynchronous labs starts on October 4.

Work those muscles!

Flexing arm emojiA strong core is more than a six pack! In this lab, students will learn about force generation, fatigue, and how integral the core is to everyday life. Students will practice fundamental core exercises and then challenge themselves in a test of endurance! 

Connections to your classroom:

  • Human Physiology, Human Anatomy, Exercise 
  • Biology, Chemistry, Kinesiology 

Ready, set, neuro!

Brain emojiDo you have lightning-fast reflexes? In this lab, students will be introduced to neuroscience and investigate control of movement. Students will challenge themselves in online experiments testing their response time. 

Connections to your classroom:

  • Neuroscience 
  • Biology, Kinesiology 
 

Synchronous labs we deliver to your class through video conference

$125 per session | October 20 - November 12, 2021

Registration for the synchronous labs will open October 4. The session fee covers the cost for our student lab instructors and a prize package that will be mailed to your school. 

A nap to remember!

Nap emojiTo cram or not to cram, that is the question! In this lab, students will be introduced to neuroscience and investigate how memories are made. Students will test their knowledge about the brain’s anatomy and learn why sleeping more might help ace that upcoming test! 

Connections to your classroom:

  • Neuroscience 
  • Biology, Kinesiology 

Lettuce talk about fats

Lettuce emojiA well-balanced diet. In this lab, students will be introduced to nutrition and the importance of different nutrients in human health. Students will examine and discuss diets and nutritional trends that are popular today! 

Connections to your classroom:

  • Human Nutrition, Human Physiology 
  • Biology, Chemistry, Kinesiology 
 

Where is dis-location?

Bone emojiOuch! In this lab, students will be introduced to injury evaluation, mechanisms of injury, and rehabilitation. Students will apply their knowledge of anatomy and human movement to assess an injury. 

Connections to your classroom:

  • Human Anatomy, Exercise 
  • Kinesiology 

Connect the dots

Dancing man emojiLights, camera, action! Students will be introduced to biomechanics and the technologies used to quantify motion. Students will apply their knowledge of anatomy to obtain kinematic measures of human movement. 

Connections to your classroom:

  • Human Biomechanics, Human Anatomy 
  • Physics, Kinesiology
