Kian Habib Explores the Effects of Exercise on the Adolescent Brain Utilizing Fitness Tracking

PhD student Kian Habib has been working in partnership with Donald Kerr, PhE specialist and interim vice principal at Massey-Vanier High School in Cowansville, QC on an exciting novel fitness tracking research project. High school students at Massey-Vanier wore fitness wearables made by Adidas called “The Zone” (https://techcrunch.com/2016/04/05/adidas-wants-to-put-these-zone-fitness-trackers-on-every-kid-in-pe-class/) during each of their PE classes throughout the year to measure physical activity levels. The goal of this project is to analyze the impact of physical activity level during PE classes on social and cognitive development for high school students.
