STEM Café: The Changing Face of Sports Today

Due to changing demographics, data analytics and enhanced training and nutrition regimens, sports have changed significantly in recent years. How have women’s sports grown in recent decades as more girls and women embrace the opportunity to play? How have sports changed at all levels now that data analytics impacts the way coaches recruit, train and organize teams? And how has the experience of athletes on the field changed as athletes become bigger and stronger than ever before, shifting the physics of football?

Join us for a lively discussion of recent changes in sports, featuring:

Christina Sutcliffe, NIU Softball Head Coach
Debra Boughton, NIU Senior Associate Athletics Director
Lisa Carlsen, NIU Basketball Women’s Head Coach
Thomas Hammock, NIU Head Football Coach
Mike Eads, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Physics
