The Science of the Olympic Games

NBC Learning has produced several awesome videos about the science that goes into Olympic sports. Click here to go to the site. Click the "Original Video" tab, and then go to "Science of the Olympic Winter Games." They're just fun to watch, but if you'd like 20 NUPoints, comment here about something you learned from each video (20 points for the first video, 10 points for each subsequent video). I just watching the snowboarding video, and it was fascinating. I can't wait to watch the rest!


  1. I learned that angular momentum is how fast you can rotate in a jump.

  2. I learned that by moving your arms and legs in or out it controls the way that your body spins in a jump.
