Score a touchdown with Football! This exhibit brings all the excitement and experience of the game of football while teaching your visitors about the science that makes it all possible. Learn what they truly mean when they say someone has a “rifle arm” while your visitors test their throwing skills in the Passing Cage area. See if any of your visitors can match the speed of an NFL running back and learn the ideal trajectory for kicking a field goal. Football covers everything from the history of the game to the equipment to the cutting edge medical technology used to prevent and treat common injuries.
Football is composed of 9 different zones each addressing a different aspect of the game, from the physics of tackling to the balance needed for cheerleading. Each zone features a mixture of artifacts, text, videos and hands-on activities. Football provides the perfect opportunity to introduce your visitors to the science, mathematics, engineering and technology content behind the game through interactive exhibits such as the Grip Test, Balance Board and Reaction Timer. Football allows your visitor to become part of the game. So what are you waiting for? Put your helmet on and get in there!
