We all know Philadelphian's know our sports... but what about the science of sports? well that is the thinking behind sports zone here at the Franklin Institute.
Jayatri Das- "This is our new sports zone exhibit and the theme of the exhibit is ready, set, go. it is all about how science can help you be a better athlete no matter what level you are... no matter what sport you play. "
"That wasn't bad!"
"This is why i never surf..."
"One is the cool things about this exhibit is that we really try to cover science from all parts of sports... so whether it is the nutrition... the psychology of setting goals... whether it is the technique you use when you dive into water... there is science everywhere and i think that this exhibit really helps people appreciate that..."
"...this is definitely the loudest room in the building and we love the energy that people bring here because it really means they are having fun while they are learning."
"...sports is something everyone relates to and using that to introduce concepts about science is just a win for everybody."
