Get In the Zone with Brazil 2014 and the Commonwealth Games!
After the huge success of London 2012 the sporting craze
continues this summer with Brazil 2014 and, straight after the
World Cup, we'll be hosting the Commonwealth Games in Scotland.
What a great opportunity to get ahead of the games and use your
In the Zone kit to bring some of the excitement of these major
sporting events into your classroom. You can use the kit to help
your pupils discover the science behind the performance of elite
footballers like Wayne Rooney, Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and what
happens in the bodies of top athletes such as Usain Bolt and Mo
Farrar when they push themselves to the limit in their quest for
We're not so much about inspiring students to become top
footballers and athletes but more about helping them to understand
a bit better how their own brilliant bodies work.
Reaction times, pulse rates, muscle types, lung volume,
endurance versus speed - science has never been so
Sent to all UK schools and colleges in March 2012, your In the
Zone kit contains everything you need to help your pupils make the
connections between activity and performance in the playground or
on the sports field and science, in a fun and imaginative way.
Don't forget to add your In the Zone pedometers, blood pressure
monitor, pulse oximeters or stethoscopes to your beanbags, hoops
and skipping ropes to your next science class and sports day!
If you or your students happen to be near Glasgow between 23
July and 3 August, why not visit the In the Zone exhibition? Set up
on the grounds of Glasgow Science Centre, this exhilharating
experience will offer another great opportunity for people of all
ages to learn about the science of our incredible human body, in
relation to sport and movement.
Have a great time using your kits and don't forget to let us know
how you get on @inthezone2014
