Secondary education

Welcome to the BREAKING BOUNDARIES exhibition, where you can find out all about the fascinating history of the Olympic Games.

The educational material accompanying this exhibition helps students discover more about the social themes running through the Olympic Games. Working in teams, they learn about Olympic history and today’s Games, and are encouraged to do their best in the sporting challenges interspersed with the assignments.
