The Ohio State University submitted by Scott Monfort: The Ohio State University (OSU) NBD team was made up of four separate labs who hosted an open house event, which consisted of eight distinct and interactive stations. Activities at each station were roughly five minutes long and covered a variety of topics in biomechanics and motor control, including instrumentation, clinical utility of biomechanics, and basic science. In a particularly interesting demo on the neural control of gait, the team split the students into “nervous system” and “musculoskeletal system” groups. The activity required the nervous system group to instruct the musculoskeletal group in order to portray the complexity of gait. Finally, the OSU team left the students with brochures describing the demos and more details about biomechanics.
