New and Special Exhibits
Football the Exhibit
October 5, 2013 – January 5, 2014
The traveling exhibit, Football, introduces visitors to the science, mathematics and technology behind the game and how they relate to our everyday lives. This highly interactive exhibit provides hands-on learning covering a wide array of science topics through football themed areas such as Forward Pass and Game at the Line of Scrimmage.
Football brings all the excitement and experience of playing football while also teaching about the science that makes it all possible. Test your throwing skills in the Passing Cage area and learn what they truly mean when they say someone has a "rifle arm." Try and 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 science of catching a pass!
