Synopsis

The Leaping, Sliding, Sprinting, Riding Science Book 50 Super Sports Science Activities by Bobby Mercer

From the swoosh of a thrown football to the force of a tennis ball smashing against the racquet, all sports involve motion and action - and that means all sports involve science. This fully illustrated entry into Lark's much-praised science series encourages kids to look keenly at the wide world of sports to uncover its underlying scientific principles. And the activities feel just like fun and games! Kids will barely realise they're learning hardcore science as they challenge friends to a reverse bike race, see how to throw basketball passes that no one can steal, and discover what's behind the infamous spitball and knuckleball.
