Summer of Sport introduction
The many sporting events being held this summer provide the perfect opportunity to get children outside and active, as well as finding out more about the human body. Exploring what the body can do is also a great way to help children understand the link between sport and science.
Our pages have been designed with families in mind and are based on In the Zone, a Wellcome Trust initiative. This summer, every school and further education collage in the UK received a free In the Zone investigation kit, bringing the science of the human body to life in the classroom.
