Science and the Winter Olympics

NBCLEARN.com (through a partnership with NSF) has created a set of 16 video clips highlighting the science present in several Winter Olympic sports.

Clips include: The Science of Snowboarding, Air Lift- Ski Jump, Science Friction- Curling, and more.

Would like to see some more resources to support the use of the video clips but this could be a great hook for getting sports fans interested in science.
