Get your community group exploring the science behind sports with this hands-on, interactive Sport Science kit.
A mix of fun and serious activities that look at heart rates after sport, the skills required to balance, and other sport-related science activities. Have you ever considered a career in Sport? You might need some Science to go with it!

Testing various common drinks for their glucose content (how much sugar is in diet softdrink?)
Testing how changing your centre of gravity position alters your ability to balance (Can you balance on one leg with your eyes closed?)
