National Biomechanics Day 2016

The first annual National Biomechanics Day was held on April 7, 2016. Its goal was to attract high school students to the emerging field of biomechanics. We had students from several local schools come to Centennial Campus and tour some of the labs in our department, including the OML. Our content focused on the importance of bone micro-architecture and cellular activity. Also, Andy used a hand-crank three point bending system to break a chicken bone, which was pretty neat!
