Make the most of London Prepares with Nuffield STEM Games

On 16-19 February, top cyclists from around the world will be taking part in the UCI Track Cycling Cup as part of the London Prepares series. How different will their bicycles be to those used in Victorian times?

Would current world records be possible on the velocipede or quadracycle?

Get your pupils considering the relationship between technology and sport with Nuffield STEM Games, a cross-curricular active learning project inspired by London 2012.

Nuffield STEM Games consists of four pods totalling 16 hours of timetabled or off-curriculum learning. All resources are free and include presentations, pupil activities and teacher notes.
