GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes

Presented by The Health Museum at The Health Museum

The Health Museum presents GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes – a diverse collection of historic, peculiar, and all-around amazing bikes as well as science stations that explore energy, forces and motion, engineering, and material science. Visitors learn how bikes work; what the history/evolution of the bike is; the science and technology behind the machine; and how bikes have impacted our culture.

GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes includes a diverse collection of historic, peculiar, and all-around amazing bikes as well as science stations that explore energy, forces and motion, engineering, and material science. The exhibit’s bikes are divided into different categories highlighting changes in design and engineering over the last century or more. It features 13 bikes and 14 interactives focusing on engineering, the classics, and oddities.

Explore the evolution of the modern bicycle, learn about the latest technologies for sporting bikes, and develop a greater appreciation for an environmentally friendly, human-powered invention that transformed the way we get around.

GEAR UP: The Science of Bikes is organized by Carnegie Science Center (Pittsburgh, PA) and presented by Sciencenter (Ithaca). For more information visit https://www.thehealthmuseum.org/GEARUP.
