Meet the teams that inspire us…


Skippered by, patron of the 1851 Trust, Sir Ben Ainslie, a previous America’s Cup winner and the most successful Olympic sailor of all time. STEM Crew takes a look at the STEM behind the scenes.

We have created teaching resources that follow INEOS TEAM UK in their bid to win the 36th America’s Cup, The oldest international sporting trophy in the world! Exploring the roles of each team member from designers and engineers, to nutritionalists and sailors.


In the ongoing challenge to keep schools and communities as safe as possible,  we are supporting schools with a set of resources that promote positive behaviour change to help students and teachers adjust to the new normal; as championed by the INEOS Sports teams.

We’re inviting schools to join ZERO Days by downloading our, free educational toolkit. This package of resources uses the key INEOS sporting hygiene principles: Prepare, Protect and Control, to encourage positive hygiene behaviours your students can practice in a fun and engaging way.

1:59 Challenge

On 12th October 2019 Eliud Kipchoge, with support from the INEOS 1:59 Performance team, broke the last great barrier in modern athletics, the two-hour marathon. In doing so he inspired others to believe that they can overcome their own personal barriers. He believes that #NoHumanIsLimited.

This series of 3 exciting STEM challenges for students covers key aspects of the challenge Eliud and his team faced; pacemakers, nutrition and course selection.

Students will put themselves into the roles of the 1:59 Team and will investigate what it takes to run a sub-two-hour marathon by carrying out hands-on practical work in physics, biology and maths.

All lessons are free and fully linked to the National Curriculum.

STEM Crew is a digital education hub, created by the 1851 Trust. Providing FREE teaching resources that cover the real world science, technology, engineering and maths in high performance sports including sailing, running and football!
