The Science behind Ireland’s longest Ziplines
We are delighted to release our video “The Science behind Ireland’s longest Ziplines” as part of Kilkenny Science Festival. Castlecomer Discovery Park is delighted to be part of the festival which runs during Science Week, 8-15 November 2020.
The video was created by our Education Officer Nichola Salmon and our Instructor and video maker Stephen Hanlon.
Castlecomer Discovery Park is home to Ireland’s longest ziplines. How long is it? How fast is it? How do you slow down? Can I fall off? Why does weight matter? Why are some faster than others? What about the weather? At 308 metres long and 35 metres at its highest point, we reveal the science behind the Ireland’s longest zipline and the importance of STEM concepts such as velocity, mass, acceleration, gravity, friction, force and tension.
