The Physiological Society has launched its largest ever competition.
Open to 16-17 year old students in the UK and Ireland, who are studying towards A-levels or their equivalent, the competition, The Science of Sport: How to Win Gold, will provide entrants with an opportunity to conduct research that may influence the athletes of tomorrow.
They will direct their own learning and investigation, work with their friends and gain invaluable experience for the next step in their career.
For teachers whose students take part, there will be access to supporting educational resources and links to scientific mentors. Shortlisted students will also be invited to present their work at The Society’s scientific meeting, The Biomedical Basis of Elite Performance.
For the winning students and their schools there are some excellent prizes available, including a “Train Like a Champion Day” at an English Institute of Sport High Performance Centre.
