Interested in figuring out figure skating? NBC Learn has some cool resources for learning about the sciences through sports, including the 2014 Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia. Apparently, they're partnering with the National Science Foundation to unravel the physics, biology, chemistry, materials science and math behind the games.

The videos are very slickly produced (as you might expect from NBC), free, and run about 5 minutes each. You can check them out here:

You can also find lesson plans and activities to go with the videos on the Winter Olympic Games from Lessonopoly on Gooru:
