For hitting the game-winning run to running a record-breaking race, science is involved in every aspect of playing sports. Sports illustrates the scientific principles involved in sports such as soccer, football, gymnastics, and skateboarding, as well as why it's important for athletes to stay in good physical shape. Twenty-five hands-on activities explore such topics as finding the sweet spot of a bat and why hitting a ball there gives you the best chance of hitting a homerun, in addition to how Newton's Laws of Motion can explain the way a skateboard works. This title is perfect for those curious about how science is involved in sports and for athletes looking to scientifically gain a competitive edge.
