Balancing Act: The Physics Of Bicycling
Presented by Andrew Dressel

The simple bicycle is one of humankind’s most fascinating and versatile inventions, and its behaviors have perplexed scientists and engineers for centuries, or so some headlines would have you believe.

We will separate the myth from the machine with many demystifying demonstrations, and we hope you will join us as we take a closer look at how bicycles harness human power, brake on a dime, stay upright — even without a rider, and steer down the road.

Making Science Exciting for 46 Years!

Friday evenings are for family fun with these interactive performances that connect science with your everyday life. The UWM Science Bag educates as it entertains. Each one-hour show is free and designed for the curious, ages 8 to 108. Topics change monthly. 2017 marks our 45th year of providing free, family-friendly science education to the Greater Milwaukee community.

Presentations are held in Room 137 of the Physics Building, at the corner of E. Kenwood Blvd. and N. Cramer St., UWM Campus.
