The Science Behind Swimming, Diving, and Other Water Sports

Behind the flips, splashes, and speed of Olympic water sports, science is at work. Gravity and centrifugal force are at work as a diver spins and flips before splashing into the water. Olympic swimmers shave their bodies to reduce drag as they zip through the water. Find out how science is involved in all your favorite water events and how athletes take science into account in their quest for the gold medal.

School Library Journal - Abby Bussen, Muskeo Public Library (WI)

"Photos abound in this STEM-ready Summer Olympics series. Critical thinking questions at the end of each volume give them that one-two Common Core punch. The many textual asides on the photo-laden pages include ample information for burgeoning athletes who really want to know how physics plays into sports. . . .A recommended first purchase for libraries looking to engage sports lovers in STEM topics." - School Library Journal
