Studying the Science of Sports in Summer Workshops

This summer, hundreds of Washington area elementary school children donned lab goggles and gathered scientific data to study the science of sports as part of a free, hands-on summer program.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science implemented and administered the program at 41 sites in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia.
