Nina and the Neurons

Get Sporty

Episode 12: Gymnastics

First broadcast: on CBeebiesLatest broadcast: on CBeebies HD

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 bend our knees when we land - with the help of Felix, her touch neuron.

Experimenters Grace and Imogen visit Nina in her lab and discover that when we jump, it makes an impact, and that a soft landing will stop us getting hurt. Next, they go to a gymnastics hall to meet a gymnast and find out why our knees are so special. Finally, they do an experiment to show that bending our knees can also help us balance. Show less
