In conjunction with National Biomechanics Day, the Center for Orthopaedic and Biomechanics Research (COBR) will be hosting an open house on April 7 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., with live demonstrations from 4:30-5:30 p.m.
The open house event is open to the public and will take place at the COBR, located in the Yankee Family Business Park on Park Center Blvd. There will be refreshments, an introduction of COBR personnel, an explanation of the science of biomechanics, and a discussion about future COBR research.
Earlier in the same day, the COBR will host high school students in the lab, hoping to inspire young minds to explore a field of science that may be new to them through an interactive biomechanics demonstration.
National Biomechanics Day is a nation-wide event promoted by the American Society of Biomechanics. Universities participate in this celebration by demonstrating biomechanics in its many forms to high school students and teachers. The goal of National Biomechanics Day is to increase awareness of biomechanics while simultaneously encouraging the development of high school biomechanics curricula.
After the demonstration, make sure to stop by Boise State’s Art and Humanities Institute for their Honeycomb 2016, a celebration of the arts and humanities on campus and in the community. The reception will be held from 4:30-7 p.m., with hors d’oeuvres and no-host bar.
