  • Moderated activities
  • Muscles in action

    Saturdays from December 5th,2020 to June 25, 2021, the Museum offers activities led by a scientific moderator to visitors who wish to participate

    Visitors will experience a real immersion into the universe of scientific research by carrying out a laboratory experiment: Muscles in action. Is having big muscles a guarantee of great strength? Participants will kick into action and use a dynamometer to test their own muscle strength. They will demystify the notions of cramps, stiffness, and muscle fatigue. To better understand the latter, they will be introduced to biochemistry and measure the pH of various samples.

    The 45-minutes laboratory Muscles in action is offered to all visitors of Get Moving! exhibition.
