What ARE those students doing? Anatomy & Physiology students can be seen doing some pretty funny things around campus lately, all in the name of science! The Health and Exercise Physiology class taught by Dr. April Carpenter is participating in a Student Work Competition.
Dr. Carpenter believes that an important component to indicate full understanding of material presented within a classroom is the ability of the student to explain the learned concepts to others. Enter the annual Anatomy & Physiology Student Work Competition! The rules are simple. Anatomy & Physiology student groups must explain a concept of their choice to someone outside of the Anatomy & Physiology classroom. The projects require depth, must reflect creativity and be accurate. Students submit written descriptions of their project along with accompanying photos.
In this, the initial year of the competition, 18 groups are participating during the fall semester. Select projects will be placed up for vote and students will help elect the final winner. Voting is also open to the campus community. The winning group will be announced at the end of the semester. Competition submissions will be posted in the Health and Exercise Physiology Department, located in the lower level of Floy Lewis Bakes Center. Project photos will on display throughout the academic year. The winning group will be announced at the end of each semester.
