ZippCast Goes Back to School: Teaching Cycling Science to Kids

ZippCast goes back to school! We recently had the pleasure of hosting middle school science teachers Andy Simon and Sean McVey from Clay Middle School in Carmel, Ind. These guys love cycling and, after years of persistent applications, were awarded a grant to look at the role of physics in bike racing. They have an Instagram account, @2touringteachers, followed by hundreds of kids and are planning cycling-related lessons for the next school year. They’re headed to this year’s Tour de France as a capstone of their project. We think you’ll love their enthusiasm for the Tour, science, and teaching kids about cycling.
