Science Probe I Technology Activities
1. Conduct an Internet search for current research (within
the last five years) on how fitness affects overall health. Be certain
to obtain information about cardiovascular and muscle atrophy and cardiopulmonary
affects. Prepare a multimedia presentation to inform your classmates of
what you have learned. Use bibliographic citations of the sources in your
class presentation. Below is a web site to get you started:

2. Conduct an Internet search on a career in one of the
life science fields, such as fitness instructor, physical therapist, trainer,
marine biologist, or pediatrician. Determine:
a.How much education is needed?
b.How much the job pays?
c.What specialized training is needed?
d.How much it might cost to get the necessary education and training?
e.How much competition is there for entry-level jobs?
f.How much security is there in the job?
Prepare a multimedia presentation to inform your classmates
of what you have learned.
Activity 10B – Use a spreadsheet
program to make your data table as shown in this activity. Record the
data in the spreadsheet as you perform the activity. Use the mathematical
functions of the spreadsheet to do the calculations for finding the length
of time the object was held up. Use the graphing function to plot a bar
graph of length of time the object was held up on the vertical axis and
student‘s name and which arm on the horizontal axis. Use this graph to
share your information with classmates. Print the final spreadsheet with
all calculations, and secure it in your SCIENCE PROBE Logbook where you
answer the discussion questions.
