P12159: Science of Swimming: 6 ways to dramatically improve your swimming skills using basic physiology and physics concepts in Spark 2018 (Mar. 17 - 18, 2018)
Come participate in an interactive session and take home important tips routed in basic physics and physiology that will help you improve your swimming skills! Though there won’t be time to get in the water together, practicing these techniques and applying these concepts will greatly improve your swimming: 1) Breathing (physiology concept: oxygenation), 2) body position (physics concept: buoyancy, gravity); 3) Rotation (physics concept: propulsion); 4) Sculling (physics concept: Lift as a force; pressure on water); 5) Streamline (physics concept: resistance); 6) Kicking (physics concepts: resistance/drag; thrust). We’ll do activities together to help you practice and better understand each concept and apply them to the next time you take a splash in the pool.
