This is the portal for a collection of 16 short videos that explore the science behind winter olympic sports. The videos aim to provide engaging real-world examples of key concepts, including Newton's Laws of Motion, momentum, projectile motion, action/reaction, and friction. Athletes are featured in each video, along with physicists, materials scientists, engineers, biologists, and chemists. Several videos document how scientists and engineers work together to design the high-tech skis, skates, and bobsleds used by contestants in the Olympics.
This resource, funded by the National Science Foundation, is part of a larger set of resources published by NBC which include the science of NHL Hockey and the science of NFL Football.
