Tony Hawk flying in the air on a skateboard Coming February 2014!

Extreme Sports. Extreme Science.

In this cool new exhibit, world-renowned skateboard legend Tony Hawk demonstrates how physics principles like gravity, force, velocity, acceleration, inertia and balance make radical tricks possible in sports like skateboarding, BMX and snowboarding. In addition to his impressive athletic achievements, Hawk’s name is synonymous with top selling boarding products, mainstream clothing, video games and impressive charitable activities including the development of public skate parks in low-income communities. He understands how physics make his sport possible and makes these challenging science concepts relevant, accessible and engaging for young visitors.
