Transcript of SCIENCE FAIR PROJECT 2013

Purpose Procedures Analysis Our science fair project will determine the relationship between exercise and the memory. The objective of the project is to find the direct link with exercise and how the memory works. Procedure # 1 We decided to compare two groups while one is doing nothing and the other is exercising.

Each volunteer was tested to see how much they were able to memorize at a normal circumstance.

Each group did their activity, which determined their memory skills.

When we compared the two groups, we saw that the group who did some exercise scored higher in the memory test than the group who was playing Tic-Tac-Toe.

The score of the two of the volunteers doing physical activity went up while one scored lower than before.

The other team had varied results for each member. One scored higher, one remained the same, and the other went down. Physical exercise enhances physical fitness, improves heath conditions and combats diseases. It also helps in the better functioning of our immune system. Exercising is good for our mental health and helps promote positive self-esteem. What Is Physical Exercise? Hypothesis: We think that if a person exercises then that person will have the capability to progress and perform better on a memory test. Procedure # 2 1)Choose 6 random people
2)Pick 15 different items and cover them with a blanket
3)Give each player one minute to observe the different materials
4)Cover the materials with the cloth and switch some materials for the next memory game
5)Each volunteer must write all the materials they know in 1 minute
6)Record results
7)Divide the 6 randomly chosen people into two groups
8)Assign the groups in a way that one group will exercise and the other will play Tic-Tac-Toe
9)The activity should last for 5 minutes or more
10)Give them a break for 3 minutes
11)Repeat steps 3-6
12)Record results and compare with the result obtained in step 6 1)Choose 1 random person
2)Pick 15 different items and cover them with a blanket
3)Give the person 2 minutes to observe the different materials
4)Cover the materials with the cloth and switch some materials for the next memory game
5)The person must write all the materials they know in 2 minutes
6)Record results
7)Tell the person to do some exercise (obstacle course)
8)The activity should last for 5 minutes or more
9)Give them a break for 3 minutes
10)Repeat steps 3-6
11)Record results and compare with the result obtained in step 6 DATA/ RESULTS Group: Physical Exercise Group: Playing Tic-Tac-Toe Group Member: Ayaan Results continued... Exercise does following to the brain: it increases the blood and oxygen flow to the brain, which enhances your memory skills. It increases your nerve cells if you regularly exercise. Exercising helps the way your brain processes information, which includes attention, memory, production of the understanding of language, learning, reasoning, problem solving, and decision making. Physical Exercise increases your hippocampus, which is located in your brain. The hippocampus is involved in memory forming, organizing, and storing information that is processed from an activity. The group who had exercised had an effect on their mood, which affected their attention when they were trying to memorize the objects in one minute.
There is a grey "matter" in our brain, which supports and critically involves our ability to learn and to memorize. What went wrong... The biggest error which occurred in our experiment, but fixed in the second attempt, was that we chose some of the same materials for the memorization test.Due to the "keeping" of the same objects, the volunteers could contemplate on remembering them. The second mistake was that we did not let our volunteers rest after their physical exercise (due to the limited time) The group who was not doing any physical activity resembled the first image, where they did not have a lot of activity going on. The group who did do the physical activity resembled the second image and they had a lot of activity going on in their head. That it why their scores were higher in the memory test as compared to those of the group who was silently sitting down. Exercise also helps in the enhancement of the brain chemicals and protects brain cells. As for the individual child, his brain also functioned better after playing two hours of hockey.
He remembered one more item than he remembered when he did not do any physical activity. Conclusion We have determined that physical activity indeed helps our memory function better. For a better and prospecting future, we need intellectual ideas, theories, development and much more.
If the youth starts to function their skills and brain energy, we can build flying cars. An application of this experiment is related to class tests.
Before the test, students should do some physical activity to enhance their attention and be at ease during the test, which will make them less stressed! Thomas Jefferson
Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning. Something to reflect on... Do we want a better future? Let's start exercising!!! Bibliography
