Biomechanics (a.m.)

Grade 7 thru 9
July 13 - 17
9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Curious about how the body works? Why do we bend our knees when we fall? Why do some people need glasses? What causes bones to break? Join us to learn about the physics of the human body! We’ll explore the forces involved in your joints, bones, and muscles; the optics of the eye; and circuitry in the brain and nervous system.
