The Science Behind Track and Field is part of Jump!'s STEM in the Summer Olympics series
This STEM-based book for children will teach kids about track and field events. Most track and field events involve running on a track over specific distances, with some adding obstacles like jumps or hurdles. Relay races are another example of these events, with teams of athletes passing a baton between one another.
The Olympic track and field events include a variety of relay races. These are team events in which four runners of the same sex compete in a series of events. Each runner runs a specified distance, then hands the baton to the next team member, who begins the next leg. Failure to exchange the baton within a specified area, dropping the baton during the race, or intentionally impeding the other team members can result in disqualification.
The Science Behind Track and Field teaches young children about the science and technology behind track and field. Full-color photos and carefully leveled text help children learn the concepts behind these sports. Also included are sidebars and an activity. A parent or teacher can use this resource to provide additional information to children.
Track and field is a sport that has developed internationally over the years. It is the most widely attended sport in the Summer Olympics. The sport includes track and field athletics, which involves running, jumping, and throwing. These events are also governed by international bodies, including the IAAF.
Track and field events are dominated by athletes who are extremely fast. The race finish line is a white line about 5 centimeters wide, and competitors must place themselves in order so that they can cross it. The sport also relies on highly accurate timing systems, which have become common in lower level meets. This technology eliminates the need for an eagle-eyed timekeeper at the finish line.
It explores the science behind track and field
This book introduces children to the STEM concepts that go into track and field. From the motions of the track to the gear and clothing of the athletes, this book will help children understand how these sports work. Young readers will also discover the science of the sport's rules and regulations.
Track and field is one of the oldest sports in the world. Judging by the earliest written accounts, jumping contests and running races have been around for centuries. Even in the first Olympics, running races and jumping competitions have been a part of the games. In fact, the first Olympic event was the 200 yard sprint. Coroebus of Elis won the event and is considered the first Olympic champion.

The Olympic Games are an annual gathering of athletes from different countries to compete in a variety of sports. The first-place finisher of each event receives a gold medal, while those in second and third place receive silver or bronze medals. During the games, spectators were encouraged to get involved in the competitions by cheering for the winners and throwing flowers and laurel leaves.
The origins of the Olympic Games can be traced back to ancient Greece. The ancient Olympics were held to honor the gods and celebrate the arts and sports. The ancient games lasted for four years, and were held in the ancient city of Olympia. Ancient historians began measuring time by the four-year interval between Olympics.
The modern Olympic Games are the leading international sports competitions. They feature summer and winter sports competitions, with thousands of competitors from around the world competing. Today, there are more than 200 countries represented in the games. The Games alternate between the winter and summer games every two years.

The Olympic Games are a celebration of sport and art. They are held every four years and contribute to world peace. The 2012 Games were held in London and featured 204 countries and 302 events. The games were originally held at a site in southern Greece called Olympia. They started as religious festivals and were held to honor the gods. Eventually, they were separated into four-year intervals.
The Olympic Movement is a part of the United Nations, and the UN shares many of the same principles and goals as the IOC. They are natural partners in pursuing common ideals. One of these is the promotion of human rights, which is important to a healthy and well-balanced society.
The Olympic rings are an iconic image of the Olympic Games. The rings are a symbol of international unity. Pierre de Coubertin, a French educator, designed the rings. He chose them so that every country flag would have at least one of them. It's also thought that the rings represent the five continents and five Olympic Games.
The concept of peace is also central to the Olympics. Olympic sports are open to people of all countries and encourage understanding among people from all backgrounds. The universality of sport rules makes it one of the few areas of human activity that has universal law. The 100-metre-run is 100 metres long no matter where it's held, because the rules of the game are based on universal values such as respect and fair play.
