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 am also interested in the ocean, there are so many unknowns and so many things to learn. I have been to the Vancouver Aquarium which I think is an amazing program. Science fair has alway been a big part in my life and I enjoy doing it.

Finding a Better Brain Booster
Region:Northern British Columbia
City:Fort St. John, BC
School:Bert Bowes Jr Secondary
Abstract:I wanted to find out if exercise, Brain Gym or a Combination of the two improve students academic performance. Each activity was tested for 5 days, at 1:00pm students received a test, once they completed the test students did 10min.of the planned activity. Once the 10 minutes was up, students received another simalar test. I found that exercise improves your academic performance more than BrainGym.
