A large part of the pupils from grade 8 of primary schools know too little about physics and technology

Only two in ten students achieve the desired level of technology and in physics it is about 42 percent of the children who have sufficient knowledge.

This is evident from figures from Cito for 2010 that were released on Tuesday.

Group 8 children should be familiar with, for example, the basics of the leverage principle. The operation of a gear must also be clear. But many students lack that knowledge.

In a previous poll in 2002, the level of knowledge was even lower. However, things have improved somewhat in recent years.

Underwear collects data from top athletes

AMSTERDAM – The American clothing brand Under Armor goes a step further in top sport. It developed underwear for athletes with electrical sensors and an accelerometer.

The sensors can determine the rhythm of the heartbeat and breathing, as well as the temperature of the skin. The accelerometer, a small device located on the sternum, measures the speed and strength of the athlete. This meter sends the data via Bluetooth. It contains a processor and has a storage capacity of 2 gigabytes.

The underwear, called E39 , allows coaches to gain insight into the performance of the athletes. For example, trainers could see exactly which player needs more strength training. This would make the system suitable for top sport.

American Football
The National Football League (NFL) in America tested the electrical undergarments at a player scouting event. According to the makers, the shirt with the sensors motivated the players.

E39’s technology has previously been used to provide Chilean miners, who were detained for about two months, with clothes that analyzed their bodies.
