Class Description

Biology in Basketball? Physics in Ping Pong? Chemistry in Football? We see sports everywhere around us, in many different forms, but do we see the science behind them? We will look at why (and how) sprinters hold their breaths for their entire race. We will answer why divers would rather dive into a bubbly pool than a calm one. Why do baseballs leave the bat going faster than it was thrown on most home runs? All these questions and more will be answered as we view the sports we play (and some we don’t) through the lens of the sciences.
