Welcome to the inner sanctum of the Geelong Cats and the cutting edge science and maths of footy!
BioCATS is a partnership program brought to you by BioLAB and the Geelong CATS.
This program explores how scientists, mathematicians and technology is used to help athletes analyse and refine their performance and technique to gain the winning edge.
Students and teachers participate in dynamic scientific experiments, using problem solving, statistical analysis and observation skills to learn about the science and maths of football and career pathways in sport.
The program also reinforces the concepts of health and wellness and the benefits that come from sports participation.
