This unique combination of football and physics has been developed to engage students who might not usually be attracted to physics and explores eight ways in which physics thinking can improve their skills: http://www.iop.org/football.
For example: how to kick a ball further, forceful tackling and using the body for balance and stability.
Four London schools ran the activities during after-school football and physics clubs in partnership with the Institute of Physics, Arsenal and QPR football clubs. At the end of the project, the students from Kingsbury High School, The Crest Academies, Whitefield School and William Ellis School came together for a whole day finale event hosted by Arsenal Football Club at the club’s new community hub next to the Emirates Stadium. This project was kindly supported by the John Lyon’s Charity.
