There are many active research projects underway in the Kinesiology, Recreation and Sport Science’s Exercise Physiology Laboratory! We are currently performing studies that involve enjoyment and exercise, playground layout/mode and physical activity in children, along with several other topic areas.
If you would like more information about our studies or are interested in being a potential subject please contact the department.
Would you like your child to be involved in a research study???
The University of Tennessee
Applied Physiology Laboratory
We are seeking 10 – 15 year old children for a research study to determine how children’s ability to complete motor skills (jumping, running, etc.) is related to their physical activity and physical fitness levels.
This study involves two, one-hour sessions at the Health, Physical Education, and Recreation Building (HPER) on the University of Tennessee campus. The children will participate in assessments of motor skills and fitness, complete a questionnaire, and wear an activity monitor for seven days. This research will contribute to the field of motor development in adolescents.
