VIDEO: Stunt cycling science

15 June 2015

The Clan cycle stunt team performed recently at Arbroath Academy as part of a Dundee Academy of Sport initiative, introducing pupils to the science behind cycling.

Dundee Academy of Sport was launched in January 2014, and is a partnership between Abertay University and Dundee & Angus College.

It has three main aims:

  • To engage young people in their wider education by bringing subjects like history and maths to life through sport - either through their participation in sport or their interest in it. The intention is to widen and increase school attainment levels.
  • To further develop the region’s workforce in the sport and leisure industry by working with local communities to offer training and development opportunities for sports teachers and professionals, as well as volunteers.
  • To be Scotland’s leading provider of sports education and research by providing seamless transition from school-leaver right up to PhD level.
