UNBC’s 1st Physi-O-lymics 2014

Thursday, March 13, 2014 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Atrium of Teaching and Learning Centre
Prince George

Students taking Animal Physiology (BIOL321) this term worked feverishly on their ‘Physi-O-lympics’ projects over the past weeks.
The inaugural ‘Physi-O-lympics’ are a newly established Biol321 course component, inspired by the recent Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. 

For these individual or group projects, students selected a sport or athletic performance of their choice, researched the physiological requirements and/or adaptations to perform a given sport or performance, then compared the results either with non-athletes and/or with one or multiple animal species that perform similar or identical motions (see Programme for project titles).
The 13 projects are now near completion and will be readied for poster presentation to all interested! UNBC community is invited to provide comments and feedback, as well as to cast their vote to determine the most popular poster, the Physi-O-lympics Choice 2014!

Please come out and join the 1st Physi-O-lympics poster presentations on Thursday, March 13th 2014!
Presentations: 10am-11:20am 3-5 minute poster-highlight talks for each project
Posters display and voting your favorite: 10am – 2pm

Presentation by Hanna Bjorndal and Vikas Sharma to the participants
