Science informs optimal learning strategies that help teachers guide students to reach their goals. The learning strategy addressed by this project is that exercise literally protects the brain against stress. When we are stressed we produce stress hormones like cortisol that deteriorate the brain. Exercise improves memory formation and it stimulates the production of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor). Help my students get some much needed exercise while they work! With your help they will get pedal exercisers that are placed under their lab tables. This way they can stimulate their cardiovascular system which will carry oxygen to their brain and create the benefits that increase learning! Harvard psychiatrist John Ratey calls BDNF "Miracle-Gro brain fertilizer" because "It keeps [existing] neurons young and healthy, and makes them more ready to connect with one another. It also encourages neurogenesis-the creation of new [brain] cells." (Excerpt from the book Brain Rules by John Medina)
