Go, Clippers, Go!
Physics, Biology, and Technology of Competitive Sport
How does a figure skater execute that triple Axel? What
forces of physics are at play? What does the physiology of the sport
look like? Computerized biomechanics? How about related health and medical
concerns, and the causes and treatment of sports-related injuries? The judging?
(Well, perhaps not that.)
The inquiring minds of Ms. Davidson's Grade 12 IB
physicists and Ms. Labun's Grade 11 IB chemists, Ms. Temesvari’s Grade 12 biologists,
and Mr. Mariano’s Grade 12 IB programmers and accepted the challenge to delve
into the realm of this fall's G4 Science Symposium topic, "The
Chemistry, Physics, Biology, and Technology of Competitive Sport."
With the help of Teacher-Librarian
Mrs. Osborne, teams composed of students from each of the two classes
researched and prepared projects investigating the chemistry and physics of a
particular environmentally sustainable topic.
The students defended their ideas to their
peers, teachers, and visiting classes. As the photos below prove, the event was
an exciting learning experience for all.
We look forward to more scientific
innovation next year!
