Pitt Students - Join us at Pitt Football Tailgates!

Many kids enjoyed visiting the Pitt Mobile Science Lab at Heinz Field today before the Pitt vs. Virginia football game! Kids of all ages rode bikes, hula hooped, ran the agility ladder and balanced on a balance board to learn more about the Pitt research studies examining the benefits of exercise on muscle function, mobility, cardiovascular function, body weight control and even brain function. Other kids tried their skills at robotics, placing ping pong balls in beakers and cylinders of different sizes, learning about robotics research at the University of Pittsburgh. Join us at each home game this Fall to see other cool science experiments on the Pitt Mobile Science Lab!
