Sports Challenge

The Sports Challenge invites visitors to test their skills in a variety of sports including baseball, rock climbing, drag racing, and surfing—all the while communicating the vital roles that physics, physiology, and materials science play in the sports’ world. A series of individual stations give visitors a chance to compete with others or improve on their own performance, each focusing on a different scientific principal that is crucial to making the sport work.

Exhibits include:
