We are pleased to invite you and your students to attend our third National Biomechanics Day at Penn State Berks on April 10, 2019. Last year’s event was a great success and we are excited to offer a bigger and better version this year! This event is being hosted by the Human Movement Research Center at Penn State Berks.
This event is designed for high school students interested in science and engineering and, particularly, their applications to human movement. The event consists of workshops conducted by Penn State Berks faculty, staff, and undergraduate research students. Workshops will include interactive laboratory activities, school and career information and time for questions. Workshops will also be given by clinicians from local Hospitals. The workshop locations include our Motion Capture Lab, Water Channel and Fluids Lab, Virtual Reality Lab, Cadaver Lab, and 3D Printer workspace.
If you came in past years, we will have many of the same or similar activities that we previously offered. We will also have new stations to accommodate the larger crowd that we are expecting. Please be aware that your group will not visit every station at the event. We cannot accommodate special requests for stations. Last year’s big hit was the cadaver lab so we will try our best to get every group a chance to see it. We are targeting the program to students in their Junior year, but students at all levels are welcome to attend.
You must supply chaperones for your students. We require at least two chaperones for 1-18 students and at least four for 19-36 students, etc. Chaperones can be a teacher, guidance counselor, or parent. The program will run from 9:30 am ‑ 2:00 pm.
There is no cost for attending the event. Students and chaperones should bring a bagged lunch with them and we will supply some snacks and drinks to the students. Additionally, the Cybercafé will be open to purchase sandwiches and other lunch items. Be aware that the line for the café may be long so it is advised for students to bring their lunch. If you bring a cooler, we can store it until lunchtime.
Please contact Joe Mahoney at email@example.com with questions about the event and how to register your school to attend. Please submit only once for each school and choose one contact person to be your liaison. Also note, there is no way to modify your information after submission, so please ensure that it is correct before submitting.
Closer to the event, I will be sending each contact person the schedule for each school and more details about the day. We will also be putting more information on the event website at https://sites.psu.edu/hmrc/nbd2019.
Please feel free forward this information to your colleagues that may be interested.
We hope that you will be able to join us this year!
