Lesson Description

Online Lessons delivered by the STEM Crew Education Team.

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 taught by STEM Crew with special guest Robby Ketchall have been created for students and cover 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 to 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 fully linked to the National Curriculum and are free.
