About Sports ‘n Science
The Sports ‘n Science program was created in winter of 2012 as a collaborative effort between the University of Utah Athletics Department and the Center for Science and Mathematics Education. Our aim is to enhance the connections between sports and science within academia and in the community to enhance the standing of both in the public eye. Through the popularity of sports, Sports ‘n Science disseminates scientific information to public audiences at sports events, schools, and camps with presentations, posters and videos.
Sports 'n Science is brought to you by Utah Athletics and the Center for Science & Math Education at the University of Utah
