Sports Science Camp


With near-perfect pitches, swings, kicks, strokes and sprints, an athlete’s skills come down to countless hours of practice and a whole lot of science. Designed to excite students by bringing STEM into their favorite activities, this camp thrives on action-packed learning experiences. Each day, learners investigate the mechanics of a different movement, connecting STEM concepts, like force, motion and the influence of gravity, to the movement of their own bodies. What does friction have to do with soccer? Why would a football player need to know about unbalanced forces? How would an Olympian hold up against a kangaroo in the long jump? Answer these questions and so much more in Sports Science Camp!

    Next Generation Science Standards

    NGSS 3-PS2-1 Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.
    Common Core State Standards for Math

    CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.MD.A.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.1 Distinguish between defining attributes (e.g., triangles are closed and three sided) versus non-defining attributes (e.g., color, orientation, overall size); build and draw shapes to possess defining attributes. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.1.G.A.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two and four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, fourths, and quarters, and use the phrases half of, fourth of, and quarter of. Describe the whole as two of, or four of the shares. Understand for these examples that decomposing into more equal shares creates smaller shares. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.1 Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.A.3 Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
