A message from Sir Steve Redgrave in the run-up to your sports day
Testing out the respirometer kit
This year I've enjoyed visiting schools and seeing first-hand
how much pupils learn from the In the Zone practical science kits.
Every UK school has a free kit so if you've not yet used
yours, open it up and have a look at what's inside. Why not join
science and PE teachers across the UK and run a Science of the
Games Day or bring a fun scientific twist to your sports day?
How pupils perform in the playground or on the sports field can
be linked to science in a fun and imaginative way. Watch
a short clip of how I used the kits with primary and secondary students.
Rather than inspiring students to become the next Usain Bolt, we
are most interested in helping them discover the science of how
elite athletes like Bolt are so good.
Your In the Zone kit contains everything needed to help pupils
learn more about their own brilliant bodies and is linked to the
Reaction times, pulse rates,
muscle types, lung volume, endurance versus speed - science has
never been so topical!
Don't forget to add your In the Zone pedometers, blood pressure
monitor, pulse oximeters or stethoscopes to your beanbags, hoops
and skipping ropes at this year's sports day.
Have a great time using your kits, and let us know how you get
on via Twitter @inthezone2012 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
