We are happy to participate in outreach activities. Please contact us if you would like us to help with a STEM event you are hosting! We have hosted VCU’s National Biomechanics Day each year, and led activities through the VCU Health Sciences Academy and VCU’s Summer Discovery Program.
National Biomechanics Day
National Biomechanics Day is an international event that seeks to increase awareness of biomechanics (the study of motion and force as applied to biological systems), particularly among high school students, teachers and the general public. It was established to advance biomechanics science and education by increasing the awareness and appreciation of biomechanics among the high school community around the world. VCU’s first annual National Biomechanics Day was held in April 2017.
If you are a company or organization interested in contributing to NBD either financially or in some other way (e.g., donation of biomechanics-related products, materials, information, etc.), please contact Dr. Peterson via email firstname.lastname@example.org.
