Sport Undergraduates Encourage Physical Activity at Local Schools


A group of students studying for a BSc Sports and Exercise Science degree at University Centre Farnborough have recently shared their knowledge of sport, exercise and coaching with local school students.

As part of the degree, students study a unit called ‘Managing Events to Promote Physical Activity’. This year, students have organised a number of sessions at a variety of settings including primary and secondary schools.

Year 7 students at Fernhill Secondary School recently enjoyed a practical PE lesson delivered by degree students, which taught school students about the fundamental skills found in sport.

The session also focused on theory, where students learned about the difference between sports and energy drinks and were then given the opportunity to make their own sports drinks.

The other sport sessions were organised at Farnborough Grange Community School and Chilworth Infant School, Guildford.

Sport & Exercise Science lecturer Mark Treagust said:

“It’s great to give the degree students real hands on experience of how sports science can work in a number of educational settings. All of our students provided an exciting PE experience for the schools which incorporated; how and when to drink sport drinks correctly, sports from all around the world and finally embedding Maths and English skills within PE lessons.”
