Sports Engineering in Education

Sport makes science fun!

The natural interest many children have in sport can be utilised to teach science and engineering.

Aim

Cooke Associates aims to use Sports Engineering to introduce and promote science, engineering, technology and sport to students in Key Stages 2 to 5, with extension into adult education.

Approach

We do this by producing interactive computer-based multimedia teaching material based on sports engineering case studies. Material conforms to the National Curriculum of England and Wales, and includes acceptable training aids for staff.

Packages Available

At present, we have three CD-ROMs available:

An e-copy of these resources (and another called The Physics of Spin in Sport) will soon be available in the eLibrary of the National STEM Centre website.
