We actually watched some of the Science of the Summer Olympics during the London games, but I didn’t realize at the time that it was part of a whole series. So, check out NBC Learn’s free resources to find videos on the science of all kinds of sports, plus video series on Chemistry, Climate Change, Civil Rights and more. These videos are very well done and can be a great tie-in with your science classes. It’s also a great way to add some science to sports. Most videos are geared toward middle and high school students, although they would be interesting to younger kids. Some videos have accompanying lesson plans.
