Dr. Ang Chen

Dr. Ang Chen (Kinesiology) received new funding from the National Institutes of Health for the project “The Science of Essential Balance.”

The purpose of the project is to design and field-test The Science of Essential Balance (SEB) curriculum for high schools. The project seeks to develop a 40 lesson curriculum to teach the science of energy-balanced living. The curriculum will incorporate mobile technology to deliver course assignments that lead students to engage, experiment, explain, elaborate and evaluate data they collect from themselves about nutrients intake and expenditure. Learning the science of energy balance will provide opportunities for students to study the relationship between nutrition, exercise and health, and between nutrition, exercise and injuries using scientific inquiry processes.
