Step Into the Physics of Human Movement at ECHO.

WHAT MOVES YOU? BODY LANGUAGEBody Language Logo

What do throwing a frisbee, snowboarding, and dancing at your high school prom all have in common? The laws of physics, of course. Explore the science of movement by visiting ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center this summer to experience Body Language: an interactive exhibit bringing physics to life, May 17 – September 1, 2008. Sponsored by Merchants Bank, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont, and Vermont Chiropractic Association.

Forget “hands-on,” this exhibit is “full-body-on”; engaging every inch of your muscles, mind, and imagination…

  • Get moving with the ultimate interactive giant Snibbe Screens, where you can literally dance with your own shadow and e-mail the image to friends and family
  • Grab on to a larger-than-life turntable and experience angular momentum and centrifugal force
  • Test the “maximum force” of your jumps, leaps, and hops
  • Get moving with a full spectrum of programming throughout the summer, with performances and workshops by Circus Smirkus, breakdancing Rhythm Riderz, Vermont Frost Heaves, Jeh Kulu Dance and Drum Theater of Burlington, and many others
