Science of the Olympic Winter Games

screen shot of NSF

Another Olympics games means a new installment of the NSF's "Science of Sports" series: Science and Engineering of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games! Each of the ten episodes presents Olympic athletes and the science and engineering concepts that underlie their performance. It's a great way to learn more about top NSF-supported research and the real-life applications. Check out the quadrocopter robotic flyer (describing how control systems engineering is laying the groundwork for the design of more "athletic" robots) in this first video of the series. (Plus see U of M's own Meryl Davis and Charlie White!)
