National Biomechanics Day (NBD) 2018—April 11, 2018—continued building excitement for the field by engaging 11,000 young students across 150-plus sites around the globe. The home-grown events allow high school (and younger) students to experience first-hand a field that underlies orthopedics, exercise physiology science, physical therapy, and countless other fields that involve human movement and performance. NBD emphasizes two ideas: 1) Biomechanics is where science meets fun and 2) Biomechanics will be the breakthrough science of the 21st century. The event has grown rapidly from its 2016 inauguration which had 2,000 students and 50 sites, all in the United States
