We all learn by doing. The concepts of science become real when your lab is configured to allow students to collect signals from their own bodies. A successful lab is one where students are fully engaged and learning the concepts—where they can achieve their goals without wasting time on equipment setup and confusing processes. That is why Cindy Marolf, EdD, Nebraska Wesleyan University, originally implemented BIOPAC, using it to increase student engagement, and taking student learning to the next level. Professor Marolf takes you into her lab, shows you how she’s utilized the Biopac Student Lab to customize her students’ lab experience, and discusses the positive impact it has had on both her and her students.
Join Professor Marolf and Tim Cook of BIOPAC to learn how to configure your lab using the Biopac Student Lab. Plus, see a live demo of a successful lab that increased student engagement.

About Tim Cook, M.S., BIOPAC Systems, Inc.
Tim received an M.S. in Health & Human Development with a focus on Biomechanics; his master’s work focused on maintaining muscle mass and bone density in Zero G environments (i.e., space flight) using a unilateral limb suspension model. Prior to joining BIOPAC in 2004, he worked as an Orthopaedic Research Assistant in studies focused on joint kinetics/kinematics of professional baseball pitchers, subscapularis muscle activity during selected rehabilitation exercises, and Comparison of Supination and Elbow Flexion Strength in Patients with Either Proximal Biceps Release or Biceps Tenodesis, then provided detailed consulting toward the implementation of motion measurement capture and analysis systems for biomechanics research.
