10 More Videos About the Science of the Winter Olympics

On Tuesday I shared a playlist of 16 videos about the science of the Winter Olympics. Those videos were created by the National Science Foundation to coincide with the 2010 Winter Olympics. In 2014 the NSF released another batch of videos about the science of the Winter Olympics.

Some of the things that viewers can learn about in these ten videos include how snow half-pipes are made for snowboarding events, the role of vibration dampening in alpine skiing, and the physics of figure skating.


There is an inquiry guide and question list available for each of the videos in this playlist. The guides are available to download as PDFs. You'll find the guides linked below each video on its respective landing page.
