Can Different Swimming Strokes Affect Your Heart?

Student: Kirsten Ernst

District/Region: South Shore District

Event: 2010 Canada-Wide Science Fair

Grade 8 - Bayview Community School

This project demonstrates the effects of different swimming strokes on your heart rate and speed.

The butterfly drill increased heart rates the most, the breast stroke caused the least increase and the front crawl was the fastest. I compared age, gender and lifeguards versus competitive swimmers. I created a swimming training program for various needs. Box plots and standard deviation were learned to interpret my data. It would be interesting to further test the effects of other factors and to try out my swimming training program. This project was lots of fun and I learned many interesting facts!!
