STEMfit: Getting ready for National Science Week 

Last week our Queensland team had great fun filming STEMfit activities with a great bunch of kids, both out on the sports field, as well as in our COVID cave. Up North Jim was hard at it too, with some filming in the sports lab. We are putting together 3 videos on technology in sport,Continue reading “STEMfit: Getting ready for National Science Week “

STEMfit: A deep dive with Dr. Charlie

We know STEMfit as having a good time in the playground and then analysing our data in the classroom. But there is another, deeper layer and that is the physiology of our body and its contribution to helping us run faster and jump higher. Learning about the bodies biology helps has design better training programmes,Continue reading “STEMfit: A deep dive with Dr. Charlie”

Football: A STEM job for the future

STEMfit partner Dr Wheeler is no stranger to sport, on any given weekend you’ll find him out there playing community rugby (well until his young family came along anyway). But what does his day job as a rugby player look like?….well you guessed it, its playing rugby too! (kinda). So what kind of benefits doContinue reading “Football: A STEM job for the future”

STEMfit, from the biochemistry lab

While STEMfit was founded on measuring how your body moves, STEMfit partner Dr. Charlie introduced us to how a better understanding of how our bodies create and store energy are now also a big part of STEMfit. Dr Charlie teaches premed medical students all about metabolism, how we create energy in our body, how weContinue reading “STEMfit, from the biochemistry lab”
