Abstract

A series of courses are developed as part of undergraduate training in Biomedical engineering by Longitudinal Designs Teams, where groups of students at vaious levels of their education work together to solve problems at the interface of engineering and biology. An experimental protocol was designed with upperclassmen guidance to evaluate the cardiovascular alterations induced during exercise. The possibility of scientifically analyzing the effects of academic exercise on students' heart rate is also explored. The effects of mental stress coupled with mild physical activity is also tested.
