Science of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games
NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, has teamed up with the National Science Foundation (NSF) to produce Science of the Olympic Winter Games, a 16-part video series that explores the science behind individual Olympic events, including Downhill and Aerial Skiing, Speed Skating and Figure Skating, Curling and Hockey, and Ski Jumping, Bobsledding and Snowboarding.
This groundbreaking project between the NSF and NBC Learn uses the global spotlight of the Olympics to make science more accessible and more interesting to students by showing how science helps athletes fulfill the Olympic motto: Citius, Altius, Fortius--Swifter, Higher, Stronger.
We have archived the special report, "Science of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games." You can still access the 16-part video series via our Multimedia Gallery (combined with the 2014 Winter Olympics video series). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the OLPA Webteam.
