How do I get a kit?

All primary schools in the UK were sent a kit for ages 4-11 in early 2012; you did not need to register to receive one. The kits were addressed to the Science Co-ordinator.

What can I do if I don't have a kit?

All the teacher and pupil notes are available to download from the resources section so anyone can carry out the In the Zone investigations:

Ages 4-5 resources
Ages 5-7 resources
Ages 7-9 resources
Ages 9-11 resources


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 gold.
