Market Days: Local Motion
Creative Ways to Get Around
Saturday, July 20, 2013 | 11:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.
Location: Exploratorium, Pier 15 Plaza
This summer, we explore the Bay Area’s capacity for invention around the theme of personal propulsion. Whether you’re a commuter, gearhead, daredevil, or just out for a walk along the Embarcadero, there’s bound to be something you haven’t seen when it comes to keeping a body in motion. Look for art bikes and other innovations such as a monowheel and a personal submarine. Test the physics of skateboarding, try out a wheelchair obstacle course, or take a seat in a 45’ dragon boat. Investigate movement through a chicken foot dissection. Make your own paper rocket with Explorables volunteers, and enjoy food on the go from SeaGlass restaurant.
