Full Event Details:

UCB offers ‘Have a Go’ opportunities aimed at Year 10 and 11 students.

Our ‘Have a Go’ sessions offer you and your students an exciting opportunity to learn more about our subject areas, experience UCB life on campus and be inspired to think about careers and further study in these sectors.

These sessions give your students a hands-on experience of the area from our team. All of the sessions are free of charge, include free parking and take place at UCB on various dates throughout the year from January to April.

In the current sporting climate, the difference between winning and losing can be as little as 1000th of a second meaning training and fitness testing can be the deciding factor. Using practical activities such as using treadmills and exercise bikes, press up and sit up tests your students will understand how exercise impacts different areas of the body and how these can affect their sporting performance. They will use health screening equipment such as heart rate monitors, blood pressure machines, peak flow meters and sit & reach boxes to monitor the results of their exercise. This will be followed by an interactive session analysing the students’ results and how different aspects can be improved to increase performance. Sessions last two hours and are available once-a-week on Mondays from January – April during the 2019 spring term.
