Kent - Olympic flames fire creativity
Pupils from Sittingbourne Community College in Kent use glucose, candles and oxygen to recreate the effects of respiration on the body and mimic how athletes release energy.
Working with a professional engineer, the pupils have been discovering the science behind becoming an Olympic or para-Olympic athlete, as part of their Royal Society Partnership Grants project.
They have been investigating how the body functions when participating in sporting activities and developing models of moving limbs.
Teachers can find out how they can apply for a grant of up to #163;3,000 towards a science project by visiting www.royalsociety.orgeducation.
