Aerospace Physiology

Aerospace Physiology

This week-long program is a STEM-based adventure where students, ages 14–17, will learn how human physiology can adapt to the aerospace environments. For example, we will evaluate brain electrical activity at cognitive rest and workload, measure heart rate on the exercycle, and assess the vestibular senses, such as balance and vision.

Each day will begin with stretching and measurement of personal flexibility. The goal of this program is for students to learn about their own adaptability and the medical challenges inherent in high altitudes, spaceflight and other extreme environments.
