In the Zone
Test your body to the max with In the Zone - the London 2012-inspired UK-wide touring exhibition bringing to life the science behind your body and how it works during exercise, movement and rest.
See how high you can jump, look at your veins, test your reactions to light and sound and measure your speed on our very own running track!
This exhibition, designed and delivered by At-Bristol, is touring the UK until September 2012 engaging people of all ages with the science of our amazing human body relating to sport and movement.
In the Zone is a national public engagement and education initiative led by the Wellcome Trust, linked to the London Olympics and Paralympics 2012. The Wellcome Trust has the London 2012 Inspire Mark for the initiative.
Smile for the camera!
The At-Bristol photography team will also be out and about, so don't forget to strike a pose if you see one of them!
