My name is Kevala. I love science! Science is my favorite class in school. I have been studying exercise for several years, first the effects on the body and now on the mind. After reading SPARK I became interested in how exercise effects the brain. The brain is extremely complex and the more I learn the more I want to know! I also love the ocean, there are so many unknowns and so many things to learn. I study the ocean in my spare time and make presentations and videos about the ocean. I have been to the Vancouver Aquarium which I think is awesome.

Train Your Brain with Exercise
Region:Northern British Columbia

School:Bert Bowes Jr Secondary
Abstract:In my study I tried to find out if 10 minutes of mild aerobic exercise improve academic performance for students in grade 5 and 6. I concluded that students performed better after 10 minutes of mild aerobic exercise by 19.6%. I believe if schools incorporated 10 minutes of mild aerobic exercise before major subjects, students will do better academically, thereby having more students passing.
