Let's talk Sport

The Sports Technology research group recently hosted the first ever event of their new #SportConnectSeries followed by a tour of their state of the art testing facilities.

The event was based around the Super Bowl 50 and presentations were given by Loughborough students from different departments as well as a video presentation by Dr Dave Krzeminski (University of Southern Mississippi, USA) an expert on football helmet testing. The event was hosted by Dr Paul Sherratt who is also the Head coach of the Loughborough Students American Football team. The audience were invited to interact with the presenter by using turning point, an interactive Q&A system (supplied by Teaching Support). The Sports Technology research group is looking forward to establishing this format and the next event is planned for June, just in time for the UEFA European Championships in France. If you are passionate about sport and want to share your insights on a certain topic or just to be added to the email/ guest-list, please get in touch.
