The Cincinnati Museum Center has a new exhibit that is fun for all types of sports fans and ages. The Science of Sports exhibit allows you to play and while educating you on the science behind it.
You can see what it’s like to throw a ball from pitcher’s mound.
Test your skills on the balance beam and see how well you do trying a few balance moves without falling off.
You can challenge someone to run a timed sprint against you.
This exhibit makes competition fun; especially when you get to show your kid that you can still beat them even though they are younger and generally faster than you.
Make sure that you also stop by the Science Demo area. My kids still remember some of the science experiments from the demo which included using their other senses while trying to catch a ball with their eyes closed.
The exhibit also has an area where kids can learn about healthy eating in the pretend grocery store.
Don’t forget to observe the photographs in the hallway leading to and from the exhibit that showcase sports figures with ties to the Cincinnati area.
“Science of Sports also features photos from the Greater Cincinnati Sports Corporation ‘s 25 Years, 25 Great Moments in Cincinnati Sports, part of its 25th anniversary celebration in 2014. A list of 50 significant sports moments were compiled and whittled down to 25. Fans voted on their top five moments, casting over 10,000 votes over a one-month period.”
