Each day participants will participate in a combination of parkour training and group work to complete milestones in SportsLab, a project-based sport research and design challenge created by EdGE, the Educational Gaming Environments group at TERC.
SportsLab is a collection of online and real world experiences for uncovering the STEAM connections between sport shoe design, sport research and design thinking. Moving through a series of Milestones, players explore sports research and design thinking, conduct hands-on activities that apply the concepts introduced on-line, and ultimately create deliverables to upload and enter in the Parkour Shoe Design Challenge with prizes from Nike.
Parkour training will take place in the “Parkour Zone” at BKB Somerville and group work will be hosted nearby at Canopy City.
