AstraZeneca Active Science
Collaboration between Cambridge United and AstraZeneca continues to strengthen in primary schools across the region, with the delivery of the "Active Science" programme. The project is delivered to 16 primary schools as part of Cambridge United's School Sport Programme, and raises awareness of the science behind health and what science can do. The programme sees the club working alongside a world leader in pharmaceuticals and biochemistry with the objective of combining science education with sport in a fun way.
Sessions include heart monitors to measure heart beat before and after exercise, making measurements with laboratory equipment, running with parachutes to teach wind resistance and other forces as well as measuring distances with trundle wheels, tape measures and measuring sticks.
In July 2017 we hosted our first Active Science day:
Our second Active Science day was held on the 6th July 2018, once again at the Abbey Stadium:
