Pittsburgh. Many would argue that there isn’t a bigger sports town around, but did you know that a passion for sports can be a gateway to talk about the topics of physics, anatomy, biology, and even chemistry? Highmark SportsWorks® offers over two dozen interactive experiences to convey information about the physics of sport and the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle.
Many of the attractions in Highmark SportsWorks® are full-body experiences, like our Ropes Challenge or 25-foot rock climbing wall. Students can feel the forces that affect a yo-yo on our You-Yo exhibit. Those that prefer to stay close to the ground can test their balance, dissect their baseball swing, and even learn hands-only CPR.
Here are some trusted web resources that go deeper into the topics covered in the Highmark SportsWorks®.
