Experience the electrifying thrills of risk taking in Adrenaline Rush. From breathtaking views of skydiving over the Florida Keys and a 4,265-foot jump from a legendary Norwegian cliff to a child’s daunting first day at school, Adrenaline Rush explores the psychological and physiological forces behind risk taking and the physics involved in high-risk activities. The film also follows skydivers as they undertake a unique scientific experiment: an attempt to fly Leonardo da Vinci's 1485 parachute design, the first ever recorded.

Combine this program with your field trip to the museum!
