A group of Year 9 science students enjoyed a visit from two West Bromwich
Albion first team players; Gareth Barry and Boaz Myhill. During the session
students learnt about fitness, how it is measured and why fitness levels
vary. They then conducted fitness tests to measure cardiovascular health by
measuring heart rate and comparing it to that of an athlete before during
and after exercise. Students then wrote conclusions before taking part in a
lively question and answer session with the players.
Feedback from the students included:
"I really enjoyed Mondays session and found it inspirational meeting
"I found the session fun and interesting, it was nice to have a different
lesson to normal where we could see how science theory is used in sport."
