Biomechanics Day

Animals in Motion

10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Ever wonder how snakes slither or how frogs use their tongues? Why do flamingos stand on one leg, and what is the physics behind how elephant trunks work? Drop in at Zoo Atlanta to celebrate the diversity of animals on Earth and the incredible ways they move. With help from biomechanics experts at the Georgia Institute of Technology, guests can participate in live demonstrations and presentations that are sure to generate excitement about biomechanics and applications in Bio-inspired Design as they tour the Zoo. This program will engage participants of all ages, inspiring them to learn more about themselves and the natural world.

Activities are free for Zoo Atlanta Members and children under 3; free with general admission.
