Olympic Learning Countdown: Olympics & Science

With 31 days until the lighting of the Olympic Torch in London, I am officially starting the Olympic Learning Countdown and am aiming to have 1 new Olympic resource each day to share with you.

Today's comes from succeeding with Science and uses a number of interactive tasks to link science and sports. 

Students will enjoy learning about the science of creating the ultimate running shoes and also the physical reactions that occur when athletes compete at the highest level in the world.

Please be sure to check out succeeding with Science here, and if you have any suggestions for Olympic resources please be sure to send them through.
