WAKEBOARDING SCIENCE BY ADAM SILCIO

line divider Members: FREE   |   Non-Members: Regular Admission

  • Museum and Store remain open until 9 PM
  • Café remains open until 8 PM
  • Observatory open until 10 PM (weather permitting)
  • FREE planetariums shows after 5 PM
  • Lecture at 7 PM + Hands-on demo

LECTURE: Learn about the history of wakeboarding and how full-size cable wake parks, like Terminus Wake Park in Cartersville, use engineering and physics with ropes and pulleys to provide a wakeboarding experience without the use of a boat.

Hands-On Demo: A block and tackle is not just for football! In science, it’s an arrangement of rope and pulleys that allows you to trade force for distance. If you have ever looked at the end of a crane or the rigging on a sailboat, then you have seen a block and tackle at work! Put your hands on some rope and “pull” to explore how pulleys work and also examine several other force-multiplying devices!

Giveaway Following the lecture, Terminus Wake Park will give away (2) 4 hour park passes valued at $45 each. Must be present to win!
