This series of 3 exciting STEM challenges for students covers key aspects of the challenge Eliud and his team faced; pacemakers, nutrition and course selection.
Students will put themselves into the roles of the INEOS 1:59 Performance Team and will investigate what it takes to run a sub-two-hour marathon by carrying out hands-on practical work in physics, biology and maths.
All lessons are fully linked to the British National Curriculum and are free.
