Team Up!
Explore Science and Sports

Team Up! Explore Science & Sports examines the science of sports through 15 interactive components. Visitors can test their own skills in sports such as basketball, tennis, soccer, and football while learning about math and physics.

In this exhibition, visitors are invited to do such things as:
  • Discover their pitching speed in a radar-equipped booth;
  • Experiment with balance using pommel-horse and balance beam interactives;
  • Make a perfect bounce pass to a "teammate" located on the other side of a barrier; and
  • Shoot a marble-sized basketball through a tiny hoop while learning about trajectory angles.
Team Up! Explore Science & Sports was developed by The Discovery Center Museum, Rockford, Illinois, and the Family Museum of Arts and Science as part of the TEAMS (Traveling Exhibits at Museum of Science) Collaborative, with major funding from the National Science Foundation. As much as possible, Team Up! components have been made accessible to all visitors.
