Students measure key health indicators such as heart rate and blood pressure while resting, reclining, after standing, and after exercising. The heart rate of Daphnia is used to illustrate the direct effects of temperature change on ectothermic (cold-blooded) organisms.
Daphnia, stereomicroscopes, sphygmomanometers, and stethoscopes are required but not included in the kit.
