Au programme

We'll start by discussing the sport of swimming by looking at the basic physics principles that underlie it - buoyancy, gravity, torque, propulsion, and more. I'll be drawing on a whiteboard, and you can draw at home using pencil and paper. We'll analyze some underwater photos of swimmers competing, and talk about the mechanics of elite swimmers. This experience should teach you about both swimming and science! At the end, there'll be time to check out my Olympic medal and ask questions about anything at all.

The strategies in this Virtual Experience were inspired by Classroom Champions’ Social and Emotional Learning Foundations Curriculum. Classroom Champions pairs Olympians and Paralympians with underserved classrooms across North America to help kids understand the real-world application of skills like perseverance, goal setting, and leadership through this powerful mentorship.

I've been a professional swimmer for 5 years, and I've been competing on the international level since 2010. In the 2016 Rio Olympics, I earned a Silver Medal for Team USA in the 200m breaststroke. While I was training to qualify for the Olympics, I earned a Physics degree from UC Berkeley. My love of science and learning informs how I look at and perform my sport, and I'd love to share what I've learned about sports and science over my career!

Did you know Josh is also an Athlete Mentor for Classroom Champions? He volunteers his time to teach social and emotional learning skills within Classroom Champions’ Curriculum, underscoring the value of dreams, grit, and perseverance through the power of mentorship.

Amazing experience for my daughter (and me) to meet Josh! Josh was approachable and engaging, and shared so many great tips with us for how to become a faster and more efficient swimmer. We are so lucky to have had this once in a lifetime opportunity! Thank you, Josh!

We had the most incredible online experience with Josh. Our 10 year old girl that is a starting competitive swimmer, was fully engaged with Josh’s amazing presentation, his unique story as both a team USA medalist and a physics scholar. The knowledge shared with us was insightful, inspiring and motivating and we highly recommend it to anyone! Josh has a lovely personality and was very approachable and open. We even got to see the medal 🏅 Thanks Josh - all the best for Tokyo and more

I had a great afternoon hearing Josh discuss his passion for swimming and the science/physics behind swimming. Josh is open, friendly, and well spoken. I strongly recommend all to take the opportunity and hear his story.

The session with Josh was so insightful, especially for an athlete that’s just starting to develop in the sport. Being an Olympian, he brought great perspective and simplified scientific concepts that children and adults can apply in swimming. Josh was supper down to earth and approachable. My son and I enjoyed the session very much!

Highly recommend this experience - especially if you have a swimmer in the family! Josh knows a lot about both science and swimming. He presents information in an easy to digest format - even for those of us who are not so science minded. Great fun!

Great experience. What made this special is that Josh shared from his own experience and learnings, which is not something you will get from a "tour guide" or a "college professor". Many thanks Josh and good luck with 2021. We will all be cheering for you!
