Joint BASES & The Physiological Society Sport and Exercise Science Animation

27th November 2019

BASES are delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new animation project, to promote sport and exercise science, undertaken in collaboration with The Physiological Society.

The animation was developed with help from a group of experts, responsible for ensuring scientific content contained within the resource was accurate and relevant. This expert group included Prof Mike Tipton from Portsmouth University, Dr Gladys Onambele-Pearson from Manchester Metropolitan University, Dr Steve Harridge from Kings College London, and the BASES’ Deputy Chair Assoc. Prof Adam Hawkey FBASES from Solent University. 

Adam, who also served as the animation’s narrator, commented: “This resource will help to inform and inspire the next generation of sport and exercise scientists, while enabling prospective students better understand the breadth of roles that sport and exercise scientists undertake. It is envisioned that the animation will be utilised by schools and colleges to support students to make more informed option choices and by universities wanting to promote their sport and exercise science-related courses”.

The animation can be accessed via the BASES’ and The Physiological Society’s careers pages:
