National Biomechanics Day, sponsored by the American Society of Biomechanics, seeks to foster the development of biomechanics as a component in high school curricula across the country. Faculty and students from BME participated in the 2018 National Biomechanics Day welcoming groups of 8th-12th graders and their teachers and parents to participate in interactive biomechanics activities and demonstrations. Part of the annual event is two Student Competitions: Best Content; and Greatest Impact. Recipients in the Best Content competition had high program quality for sharing biomechanics with judging based on the educational value and creativity of the content. Recipients in the Greatest Impact category had an NBD reaching a large number of people with judging based on participation and event advertisement/coverage. At the 2018 event BME, represented by graduate student Nicholas Hanne, was awarded a Greatest Impact award.
