National Biomechanics Day is April 6, 2017*!
National Biomechanics Day is a world-wide celebration of Biomechanics in its many forms for high school students and teachers. We are following are hugely successful NBD 2016 in which over 2,000 students and teachers from high schools around the U.S. participated in fun and fabulous biomechanics events. We are also going INTERNATIONAL in 2017 with events planned for New Zealand (celebrating April 3rd 2017), Brazil, Canada, and other countries. NBD 2017 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 2017 by clicking the registration link below. You can see how great NBD 2016 was by clicking NBD 2016.
Our long term goal is to foster the development of Biomechanics as a standard component in high school curricula around the world. Our immediate goal is to create synchronized celebrations of Biomechanics among all participating labs and other biomechanics facilities, a Biomechanics Open-House. We invite high school students and teachers to contact nearby NBD participants (see the Participants link for a regional) and let them know you want to participate. NBD will be fun, exciting, and enjoyable science for everyone. In fact, our theme this year is, “Science Meets Fun on National Biomechanics Day.” Fantastic!
Please read the complete greeting from Paul DeVita, Ph.D., Past-President of the American Society of Biomechanics and founder of National Biomechanics Day.
Students! National Biomechanics Day is hosting a Student Competition! Check out the requirements and try to win some amazing NBD shirts for your lab!
*While most sites will hold NBD 2017 on April 6, some cannot due to scheduling conflicts. These sites will celebrate NBD on dates close to April 6 and so contribute to the enjoyment and excitement of NBD 2017.
