This week on The Conduct Science Podcast, join Mitch and Tom as they go for gold! That’s right, the boys rock up at the Olympics this week with the aim to talk about some events and discuss which animals might be most suited for that event and the science behind it! While the boys get gold for effort, they’d be lucky to scrape a bronze for time keeping!! Mitch and Tom cover the 100m sprint: why are humans so adapted for running and which animals are the fastest over 100m? Mitch then takes a look at shooting and the science behind why chimpanzees are the most likely animal to take home a gold medal in this crazy Olympics. Lastly, Tom commentates on the amazing ability of marine mammals to dive to amazing depths! Join us next week for part 2!
