National Biomechanics Day (NBD)

Happy National Biomechanics Day! 

VT will be hosting NBD asynchronous virtually through BOLD from April 6th - 16th 2021! To participate in the event is simple just explore the BOLD website and learn about biomechanics. You can do so by exploring the labs at VT on the website or through the virtual reality spaces linked at each lab's subpages. Additionally, we have some fun activities to do at home or in the classroom including a gait biomechanics activity and a spine biomechanics activity. Please use the menu at the top of the page or bottom to navigate the site. 

If you plan on participating with your school/class or as an individual please fill out this google form.


Founded in 2016, National Biomechanics Day (NBD) is a celebration of biomechanics principles, research, and innovation across the United States and around the world.  Biomechanics combines science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics to offer engaging opportunities for both students and teachers. The 2016-2019 NBD events were hugely successful and offered the opportunity for students to participate in hands-on biomechanics activities. NBD gives students the chance to interact with undergraduate and graduate students, meet impactful faculty members, and get first-hand exposure to fundamental principles of biomechanics while having a blast in hands-on games and activities. Virginia Tech has been participating in NBD since 2016 and will continue with an exciting and fun-filled event again this year. This year, NBD at Virginia Tech will take place on April 7-10, 2021  We are currently planning a virtual event for 2021 featuring BOLD: Biomechanics Online Learning Destination!
