Visit the Grout Museum's Sulkies to Speedways exhibit and learn the science behind racing! Find out why horses are built for speed, from their shape to their lungs, and why jockies sit the way they do during races. Try building your own LEGO cars and test the forces acting on race cars and motorcycles on the track including drag, friction, and grip. Build your own race track using BluTracks and discovery if you can make your car go around a loop.

(Museum is closed July 14-15.)
