Physics of Sports

These full-body, ‘life-size’ sports interactive exhibits teach the basic science and technology of sports-balance, trajectory, center of gravity, momentum, transfer of energy, and more. Read about these exciting exhibits, then come and try them out for yourself!


You-Yo

Become a human yo-yo on this 25-foot-high arch with a three-foot flywheel mounted at the top. Whisk yourself high in the air and soar with the help of kinetic energy. Wouldn’t you like to become a yo-yo?

*Note: Socks are required to enjoy the You-Yo


Go for a Spin!

Experience rotational physics first-hand as you vary your body position to control your speed on a spinning platform and relate it to ice skating or gymnastic skills.


Big Hockey

Test your reaction time and motor skills as you play on the world’s largest ‘bubble hockey’ table.
