SAILING CHALLENGES

GREAT BRITAIN SAILGP TEAM

We are the ‘Race for the Future Purpose Partner‘ of the Great Britain SailGP Team. Helmed by Ben Ainslie, the most successful Olympic sailor of all time, the Great Britain SailGP Team comprises of some of the country’s top sporting talent with Olympic medals across multiple sports.

Together with Sir Ben Ainslie and the Team we have exciting plans to launch a free innovative education resource for secondary school students.  Focusing on environmental science the resource will highlight the causes and impacts of climate change to accelerate changes in behaviours and help the next generation become the environmental problem solvers of the future.

INEOS TEAM UK

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 created teaching resources that followed INEOS TEAM UK on their journey to 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.

COVID19 BACK TO SCHOOL

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.

RUNNING CHALLENGE

On 12th October 2019 Eliud Kipchoge, with support from the INEOS 1:59 Challenge 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  team and 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.

FOOTBALL CHALLENGE

Inspired by UEFA EURO 2020, we have worked in collaboration with the Football Association to bring the excitement of the tournament to schools.

Through the Host City Challenge, teachers are being invited to take pupils on an incredible adventure through Europe, completing science, maths and PSHE challenges in each of the 11 tournament host cities.

UK ULTIMATE FRISBEE

Ultimate is a non-contact team game that is often played with mixed-gender teams.  Playing with a disc instead of a ball makes a nice change – and there’s a special thrill about learning how to make the frisbee fly.  Ultimate is self-refereed, creating great opportunities to learn more about communication, trust and empathy.  Students will explore the STEM behind the sport, investigating relative speed by watching how the players catch the disc!

Henri-Lloyd

This Physics resource uses the exciting context of Henri-Lloyd clothing to explore the topic of insulation. Students will investigate how Henri-Lloyd designed clothing for the INEOS TEAM UK America’s Cup team to keep them performing at their optimum. An energy transfer and insulation practical, expands scientific knowledge whilst allowing students to find out more about the roles of each sailor onboard an AC75 race yacht.

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!
