PE students get insight into Science in sport

This week the A level PE students welcomed Nikki from Essex University to school in order to gain further insight into the use of Science in sport.

 

Students had the opportunity to use specialist sport science equipment to conduct experiments to measure their hydration levels and learn more about  how this can impact performance. They then had their chance to use specialist force plates and speed gates to measure their Speed, Agility and Vertical Jump (Power).

 

We found out one student needs to drink more and one students vertical jump was on par with the elite Basketball players at the university!
