Athletes playing a sport, no matter which sport, rely on a series of common scientific principles for success. A hitter in baseball relies on the same principles of energy transfer as a football player preparing for a tackle, yet the two events seem completely different. A tennis player relies on the same principles of spin as a baseball pitcher throwing a curveball, despite the equipment difference. And a point guard relies on the same principles of gravity for balance as a person scaling a rock wall. How are they the same? At this Demonstration, a NYSCI Explainer guides visitors through a series of experiments involving all of these principles and discusses the technology and science fueling an array of sports.
NYSCI offers a series of Demonstrations daily and rotates the schedule of presentations. Please contact us to inquire about Sports Demonstration times and availability.
