The 3rd Annual National Biomechanics Day is April 11, 2018*!
Celebrate National Biomechanics Day
The Breakthrough Science of the 21st Century.
National Biomechanics Day is a world-wide celebration of Biomechanics in its many forms for high school students and teachers. We are following our hugely successful 2016 NBD in which over 2,000 high school students and teachers around the U.S. participated in fun and fabulous biomechanics events and our 2017 NBD that had over 7,000 high school students and hundreds of teachers around the world participate in exciting and inspiring biomechanics celebrations. National Biomechanics Day 2018 will be astounding in its scope and educational outcomes: it will be a world-wide blast of biomechanics science and fun. We ask all biomechanists, really every biomechanist, to volunteer for and participate in NBD 2018 by clicking the registration link below. You can see how great NBD 2017 was by clicking NBD 2017.
Biomechanics is the fundamental example of STEM and STEAM educational initiatives. It combines Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics into one awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, human-enhancing, creative endeavor. Kids love it, are amazed by it, and are drawn to it. Each of the previous NBDs have elicited more excitement and more smiles in science labs around the world than most people would think possible. Please join us in celebrating the breakthrough science of the 21st century. We invite all biomechanists to hold NBD events and all high school students and teachers to contact nearby NBD organizers (see the Participants link for a regional listing) and let them know you want to participate. NBD will be fun, exciting, and enjoyable science for everyone. In fact, our theme is, “Science Meets Fun on National Biomechanics Day.” It really does!
Please read the complete greeting from Paul DeVita, Ph.D., Past-President of the American Society of Biomechanics and founder of National Biomechanics Day.
*While most sites will hold NBD 2018 on April 11th, some cannot due to scheduling conflicts. These sites will celebrate NBD on dates close to April 11th and so contribute to the enjoyment and excitement of NBD 2018.
