Special Exhibition – Sportsology in the Museum’s 1st Floor East Gallery

The same science and engineering that helps us to create new technologies scan also help us to understand how our bodies work, and how we can improve our physical prowess. In Sportsology, you’ll have the opportunity to try a number of physical activities, because it’s fun. But you’ll also get to learn about the science behind how your nerves and muscles work, why stretching can improve your performance, and even how physics and gravity affect your fastball. You may not be as fast as a panther, strong as a bear, or quick as a fox, but the human body is capable of remarkable physical feats. So explore Sportsology to learn more about the amazing things your body can do, and how it is able to do them.

This exhibition was sponsored by Pirates Charities and the Bradenton Marauders.
