Science of the Olympic Winter Games

Posted on February 17, 2010 by admin

This is one of the cooler websites I have seen recently. My kids and I have been watching some of the Olympics on TV. The National Science Founds is hosting a 16-part video series put together by NBC on the Science of the Olympic games, which describes all the physics and mathematics behind Olympic sports including how equipment can make a difference in performance. Cool stuff and a nice contribution by the NSF and NBC to educators.
