Physiological Society Poetry Competition: Ode to Physiology!
Enter The Physiological Society Poetry Competition and WIN!
For 2016 The Physiological Society is looking at the theme of Elite Performance. They want to raise awareness of the physiology behind elite performance and highlight research exploring the makings of a champion in humans and other animals.
Using rhythm and rhyme, can you explain the physiology behind what makes a super-fast runner or a deep-sea diver? Pick an animal, maybe a human, a cheetah or a peregrine falcon, and use it as inspiration to complete The Physiological Society’s poem to win some great prizes for you and your school.
Here is your starter verse:
In the animal kingdom some are elite, In a race against a cheetah you couldn’t compete, But what adaptations make you win the race, whilst other species find it hard to keep the pace?
Your poems should delve into the physiology of your chosen animal, if you are not completely sure what physiology is, take a look at our ‘What is Physiology‘ page.
A winner will be chosen from three age groups – 10 and under, 11-18, and 18+
