Joints Exhibition by Hands On!


Joints Exhibition by Hands On!At this experiment station, visitors discover how the mechanics of physical motion work as they experiment with different joints found in the human body. The station includes four sample joints—hinge, pivot, ball and socket, and gliding—shown in a simplified form to make their connections and movement clear. The mechanical nature of the joints helps visitors connect the idea of human body with the broader concepts of movement, machines and systems.
