Science and the Olympics!!!

When you're watching the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics next month, will STEM topics come to mind? The educational arm of NBC News certainly hopes so.

The videos, available to the public for free online, tackle subjects such as stability and vibration in alpine skiingengineering the half pipethe science of snow and ice, and, as seen below, the physics of slopestyle skiing.
