National Biomechanics Day is April 6, 2017!
**NOTE** The NBD website is currently going through updates. Some pages may not be complete. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please check back soon and often to see the updates!
National Biomechanics Day is a nation-wide celebration of Biomechanics in its many forms to high school students and teachers. Our theme this year is, “Science Meets Fun on National Biomechanics Day,” and without doubt everyone will see and think that Biomechanics is the breakthrough science of the 21st century.
Our long term goal is to foster the development of Biomechanics as a standard component in high school curricula across the country. Our immediate goal is to create synchronized celebrations of Biomechanics among all participating labs and other biomechanics facilities around the nation, and this year, the world, a Biomechanics Open-House. We invite high school students and teachers to contact nearby NBD participants (see the Participants link for a state by state list) and let them know you want to participate. NBD will be fun, exciting, and enjoyable science for everyone. Fantastic!
