The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) in Fort Lauderdale will host Sports Spectacular Weekends in November (November 12-13, 19-20, and 26-27) to teach visitors the exciting science behind their favorite sports. Guests are invited to challenge themselves using physics to solve some of sports’ toughest questions, like, “Why do golf balls have dimple?” and “Why do footballs fly faster through the air in spirals and curveballs curve?” For hands-on fun, test your engineering and athletic skills by constructing a mini golf course and hitting a hole-in-one.
For early learners up to age 6, activities throughout the museum allow children to observe why balls fall at different speeds, experiment with ramps, and create their own golf ball painting and make-and-take cup and ball games.
Visitors can also explore the “Powerful You!” exhibit, participate in a Panther Prowl augmented reality experience sponsored by the Florida Panthers, and test engineering and athletic skills in the To Fly Makerspace.
