Game Day STEM
How does a diver minimize their splash and maximize their score? How can a vaulting pole bend without snapping? How is sports equipment made to accommodate forces? The underlying STEM principles for the sports you know and love will be explored. Students will build and race a robotic swimmer, re-engineer an archer’s bow, and test cycling gears! Participants will discover how STEM concepts are applied to a variety of sports, helping athletes maximize their performance.
