Can science make you better at sports? Sports scientist John Drazan says the answer is yes. John shares how losing a high school basketball game made him start thinking like a scientist. His high school physics teacher stepped in to explain how an idea called “mechanical advantage” could have saved the last point of the game – and changed his life forever. Join us to hear John’s aha moment, and hear his tips on how science can make you better at the things you love to do.
