The recent Innovation Games series hosted by TV presenter, author and STEM+ communicator Lee Constable, brought the sports and science worlds together.
You can now watch online as representatives from Sydney Thunder, GWS Giants, Sydney Kings, NSWIS and the Australian Olympic Team demonstrate some fun experiments you can try at home #innovationgames.
Here is a sample of what you can watch online:
Egg Toss with Nathan McAndrew & Matthew Gilkes (Sydney Thunder)
