BY POPULAR DEMAND — ECHO’S “BODY LANGUAGE” EXHIBIT EXTENDED UNTIL NOVEMBER 3rd

BURLINGTON, Vt. — Dancing with your own silhouette, painting the walls with your shadow, spinning ‘til you’re just plain silly… if you’re one of the thousands of visitors who came to love ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center’s “Body Language” exhibit this summer, and couldn’t bear to see it go — you’re in luck! This special show now runs through November 3rd, and has been updated with even more ways to discover the fascinating physics of human movement. With new interactives plus free workshops on Segway riding, Burlington Ultimate Frisbee, and more, “Body Language” is sure to delight both first-timers and repeat visitors alike. Sponsored by Merchants Bank, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont, and Vermont Chiropractic Association.

Don’t miss…

  • NEW: “The Frictionator!” All objects are not created equal — at least not when they’re hurtling down a ramp in a race with your friends!
  • Free Segway riding workshops with SegRides of Vermont — experience the world’s first self-balancing, electric-powered transportation device. Moving your body moves the Segway!
  • Giant Snibbe Screens: Where you can literally dance and paint with your own shadow, and then e-mail the image to family and friends.
  • Turntable Tricks: Grab onto a larger-than-life turntable and experience dizzying angular momentum and centrifugal force — but hold on to your lunch!

Find even more “Body Language” features and workshops, plus specific dates and times, by visiting ECHO’s website at www.echovermont.org.
