K'NEX: Building Thrill Rides
K'NEX: Building Thrill Rides is a new exhibit opening at the Museum of Science today. Kids and adults can check out and explore the science, math, technology and engineering behind amusement park rides. Created by K'NEX Industries, the exhibit features models constructed solely from K'NEX rods and connectors, including a roller coaster measuring over 10 feet tall, a six-foot Ferris wheel, and a variety of swing rides from three to 10 feet.
K'NEX will bring scientific and engineering concepts to life to visitors, who will be able to conduct simple experiments to explore physical forces such as potential and kinetic energy, and linear and rotational motion.The kids will build a free takeaway windmill, or create a more ambitious thrill ride and stop at the "Weigh and Pay" station to take it home. Should be a good time. We're going to check it out this week. I'll post an update.
