Nurturing inherent creativity and curiosity
In this episode, we will explore the fascinating history of cricket, and learn about the science and maths involved in batting, bowling and fielding. The collision of a bat and ball, hitting sixes and canon shots, throwing swing balls, and doing trigonometry in an instant in your head as your run to catch a ball... Far from being a distraction from studies, every aspect of cricket is filled with amazing science and math.
You will certainly enjoy cricket more after learning the magic of nature that happens behind it as you play it every day, and will probably also love science and maths more as you begin to observe it on the playground. As a bonus, you will also learn how to make a simple model of a ball that you can swing yourself and be a master swing bowler in your gully cricket matches!
