Teaching Material of the Month: Under Pressure - The Physics of the Football

The whole of Europe is in a football fever and this of course includes teachers and students. One of the teaching units, ‘Under Pressure’, is about the ball and the impact of the air in it. By doing experiments, students determine how to measure the weight of the air inside the ball and how the pressure inside the ball influences its bounce on the ground. The material is taken from the brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' and can be downloaded here:

Presentation iStage 3

Brussels: Release of 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching'

On 2 June 2016 Science on Stage presented the new teaching brochure 'iStage 3 - Football in Science Teaching' in Brussels. 20 teachers from 15 countries have developed teaching material where questions and experiments about football can be employed in order to provoke  the students interrest for STEM. The ideas of the brochure will now be spread via teacher trainings all across Europe. Find further information about the event at:

>> www.science-on-stage.eu/Press_release_iStage3
'iStage 3' presents in twelve teaching units interesting experiments around football for biology, chemistry, computer sciences, maths and physics: From the measurement of the mass of the air inside the ball, to the influence of energy drinks on the performance of the players up to calculating the chance of scoring during a penalty shoot-out. The material can now be ordered or downloaded free of charge at:
