Study with Sports
Have you ever dissected a frog in Science class? Gross! Your science class is full of weird projects, but maybe this year you can bring it together with your favorite subject… sports!!! The studies of sports and athletes are totally connected with biology, physics, and chemistry and this year you should try to do your class project on your favorite sport.
Science and Sports
Science class can actually help you learn how to play sports better. Learning about how our bodies work, what we’re made of, how food makes us grow all relates to how we perform in sports. Here are a few cool projects that you should propose to do for your science class project.
Muscles – Which muscles do we use when we shoot a basketball, throw a baseball, stride while skating etc. etc. (This is a good example of Biology)
Diet – Foods that are good for athletes. What foods are good for long distance running or short distance running and why? What’s the difference? (This is a good example of Chemistry)
Techniques– Specific skills need to be looked at very closely with science to understand how to do these skills right. Answer questions like how to kick a soccer ball high into the air or how to swing a tennis racquet to make the ball spin (This is a good example of Physics).
Involving sports in your science projects is a really fun way to learn about your own body and how to use it. It might even make you a better player in the sport you play. If you do it and enjoy it, you can even make a career out of it. It’s called Kinesiology and it leads to jobs like coaching, training, physiotherapy, sports analyzing and much more.
