  • ASB40: STEM Outreach Expo: Call for Submission of Biomechanics Demos/Lab Activities

    --Do you have a great demonstration or lab activity to illustrate a biomechanical concept?
    --Could your demonstration or lab activity be easily recreated in a classroom?
    --Are you interested in a $500 award to help with travel expenses to Raleigh, NC for ASB40?

    We are pleased to announce the initiation of a new ASB educational outreach effort to compile and present ‘hands-on’ biomechanics demonstrations and lab activities. This is part of ASB’s larger effort to get K-12 students excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) by showcasing the field of biomechanics to the general public.

    We are calling on the ASB membership to submit lesson plans that could easily be recreated by teachers in a classroom describing a biomechanics demonstration, lab activity, or both. If chosen among the top 5 submissions, you and your team will get to roll out your lesson plan live at this year’s 40th annual meeting of ASB (ASB40). The top 5 submissions will be awarded a $500 travel award to attend the meeting and funds will be provided to cover supplies for the outreach expo.

    Applicants will prepare a packet containing a description of a biomechanical concept along with step-by-step directions complete with list of materials/costs required to carry out a ~20 minute ‘hands-on’ demo or activity. Applicants will also prepare a short instructional video to be uploaded to YouTube demonstrating execution of the lesson plan contents.

    Full information is available at:

    Submissions are due Monday, May 23rd

    Send Questions and Submissions to: Tracy Giest (tlnorman@ncsu.edu).
