The latest exhibition to open at the National Wool Museum in Geelong is Sports Alive!, an interactive 'try your hand' exhibition for children and families from Science Alive! in New Zealand.

Explore the scientific principles behind sport in a fun and entertaining way as you run, jump, throw, bat, kick, row, putt and cycle your way around this highly interactive exhibition.

Sports Alive! gives visitors of all ages the chance to experiment with a range of different sporting activities including soccer, golf, cycling and rowing and to discover why exercise is so important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Participants can also learn more about the way our bodies work and how we can look after our bodies through healthy eating and exercise.

Sports Alive! has been built to rekindle the joy of activity through sport and the excitement and challenge of competition. Eight major sporting codes provide a competitive challenge that allows families, friends and workmates to compete one on one then test their skills with jumping, balancing and reaction activities.

Test the speed and accuracy of your rugby pass or climb on bikes and race over a virtual 3D course where the finish line is in site. Find out who has the fastest reaction time and who can jump the highest and longest.

Geelong is the first Australian venue for the Sports Alive! touring show (as well as the only Victorian venue).

The exhibition runs from Monday 12th March through to Sunday 13th May.
