Nina and the Neurons

Get Sporty

Episode 7: Marathon

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies

Super scientist Nina and her young Experimenters travel the UK in search of sporting wonders. With the help of Nina's five animated sense Neurons, they explain why sports people are so amazing and how we can all get out and get sporty.

Nina investigates why we get out of breath when we play sport - with the help of her taste neuron Bud and her smelling neuron Ollie.

Experimenters Adam, Maha and Rani visit Nina in her lab and discover what happens to our breathing when we exercise. Next, they meet a marathon racer and find out that air needs to move to our muscles to keep them working. Finally, they do an experiment to explain why marathon racers can keep going for a long, long time. Show less
