Dynamic Bodies

In this active sports science session, students discover what makes a successful sportsperson by exploring the relationship between physiology and performance. Utilising clinical state-of-the-art equipment, we measure a range of biomotor abilities, including speed, agility and strength to determine performance indicators and learn how different sports and athletes require different training targets. Get into some friendly competition with your peers as we explore the importance of exercise in our everyday lives and how measurements in exercise physiology help us understand more about how our bodies function.

This activity aligns with and extends concepts and content within the K-6 Science and Technology syllabus, the K-10 PDHPE and Mathematics syllabuses and the 7-8 Technology Mandatory syllabus.
