Science Junkie: In the Zone
Science Junkie: In the Zone is a new, interactive,
action-packed live science show that explores the physiology and
sports engineering that make an Olympic and Paralympic athlete a
champion. The show can be delivered at schools and festivals.
I'm a Scientist, In the Zone
I'm a Scientist, Get me out of Here! is a free online event
where students get to meet and interact with real scientists. In
2012 there was a special I'm a Scientist, In the Zone where
students found out more about the In the Zone investigations. The
website shows a repository of students' questions and scientists'
responses. For more information go to http://inthezone.imascientist.org.uk/teachers.
Performance 2012 was a successful project engaging with a wide
section of the society in the physiology, pharmacology and ethics
of performance enhancement in sport. The final output is an open
access web site where resources have been prepared and can be
freely used for others to run similar events in the future.
The project involved three key events for the Olympic year:
■ A mock drugs testing laboratory and debate on the use of
drugs in sport. For KS4 & 5 pupils during National Science Week
and the Leeds Festival of Science.
■ An ethical debate on the roles and responsibilities, of
those working with young people in sport, to their athletes.
■ A free exhibition featuring interactive demonstrations
and displays from leading researchers in the field exploring
performance enhancement in sport.
Face to Face with Sports Science
Face to Face with Sports Science ran events in 2012 which aimed
to engage and inspire both the general public and students through
interactive exhibit days at popular NW museums and four targeted
workshop for secondary school pupils. The project was designed and
delivered by esteemed practitioners and researchers from the
Research Institute of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John
Moores University and in partnership with World Museum Liverpool
and the Museum of Science and Industry (Manchester)
