Science in the Summer: Level 1

Monday, June 19, 2017, 2:00 pm

Students will discover how science helps athletes perform in their sports.  They will participate in challenges (balance, stability, reaction time) to understand physical and mental skills that can be helpful in sports and learn about the importance of good nutrition.  To understand the science behind the development of different types of protective sports equipment, students will build models.  In addition, they will explore the physics of several popular sports.  Students will create profile cards of their own ultimate athlete or sports scientist.
