Date:
November 11, 2011 to May 6, 2012
Location:
Museum of Discovery & Science
Description:
What’s the angular velocity of the Blender Ride as it spins about the center post? This is just one of many questions that will be answered in K’NEX: Building Thrill Rides, a special exhibit that will captivate visitors and provide them the opportunity to explore the science, math and technology behind hair-raising amusement park thrill rides. Display models will range from a roller coaster measuring over 10 feet tall, a 6 foot Ferris wheel, a variety of swing rides from 3-10 feet and include the new Serpent’s Spiral, a roller coaster made from K’NEX regular and micro parts and that stands over 4 feet in height. The realistic actions of the models will bring scientific and engineering concepts to life for students, who will be able to conduct simple experiments to explore physical forces such as potential and kinetic energy, and linear and rotational motion. Happily, children won’t have to leave their on-site creations behind – instead, they can purchase their designs, with pricing based on a Weigh & Pay model. The Explore Store will also have K’NEX sets on sale for aspiring young engineers and architects.
