A group of secondary school year 13 science pupils yesterday undertook the exercise project as part of the University of Otago’s latest annual Science Academy programme.
"The beauty of the sports and exercise project is that it helps break down that old stereotype of the scientist in a lab playing around with test tubes and bunsen burners," academy director Mr Broni said.
High-tech research undertaken at the Otago School of Physical Education, Sports and Exercise Science supported the efforts of New Zealand’s high-performing athletes and a "huge number" of recreational runners, cyclists and athletes, he said.
