UNO TRiO’s Upward Bound programs in the news! Inside Science kicks off with Baseball-

Jordan Burnett tests his reaction time with UNO engineering major Zachary Schexnaydre

Students learned firsthand from Privateer baseball players and UNO science and engineering students about basic science and engineering principles and then saw those principles put into action during an intercollegiate game. Saturday’s event was the first edition of UNO’s Inside Sports program, which is designed to give high school students a better appreciation of science and engineering concepts that play an important role in sports.

Inside Sports is presented by UNO’s Office of Research, College of Sciences and College of Engineering. Saturday’s program focused on baseball and probed concepts such as kinetic energy, motion and how the materials of the bat and ball affect how they behave in a game.  Matt Tarr, UNO’s vice president for research and economic development, welcomed them and delivered an overview of the basic concepts. Students heard from members of the Privateers baseball team about how these concepts factor into their experiences on the field. Breaking out into smaller groups, high schoolers participated in an exercise with the help of undergraduate students from UNO science and engineering programs that allowed them to calculate their own reaction time.
