Team GB take GOLD! STEM & The Rio 2016 Olympics – Planning & Resources
As Team GB take GOLD at the Rio Olympics, we’re celebrating with some fantastic Olympic STEM challenges & resources! They are perfect for home, STEM Clubs or if you’re planning STEM activities for the Autumn Term.
If you’re thinking of using the Rio Olympics as an opportunity to explore the role of STEM subjects in sports, there are a number of sports related resources – which were inspired by London 2012 – available on the STEM Challenges website. Challenges include developing a new sports venue, an anti-doping challenge, exploring travel and carbon footprints, designing a sports glove and creating wetsuits for paratriathletes.
All challenges are available to download here…
STEM Learning School Curriculum Resources
The Olympics and Paralympics are fantastic learning opportunities right across the curriculum including science, maths, D & T, geography and of course PE! STEM Learning’s resource bank contains many useful ideas as to how to put these into practice, such as investigating heart rate after exercise, analysing reaction times, looking at healthy diets and using sports activities for data collection, presentation and analysis.
