Artifact: Biomechanics Lab
Element: 1.1
Date: Spring 2010

Reflection: This biomechanics lab shows my scientific knowledge on running kinematics. The artifact was selected as it shows how the number of strides and steps affects an individual's running time, as well as other aspects of running. Running is an important part of many sports. Being able to adjust running technique will certainly improve one's sport performance.
