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.
For immediate access to all of our free Key stage 3 and 4 STEM teaching resources.

In this Biology resource we use the England Women’s football team to build understanding of heart rate and recovery, and why it is important in sport. Students will use practical activities to test their knowledge of their own heart rate and the time it takes for it to return to resting/normal following exercise. Watch the short starter film to kick off your lesson and hear from England player Jess Carter, and some of the England support team, about the team’s training regime.
Explore the concept of power using the context of the super-fast SailGP GBR catamaran and the cutting-edge technology of wind turbines. Students will have the chance to build a working model wind turbine and use their new knowledge of calculating power to build the most efficient design. There is also the chance to find out from SailGP GBR sailors and wind industry experts about their fields and careers. The sustainable recycling process of wind turbines is also considered giving students the opportunity to come up with their own solutions.
