As a part of Engineers Week, Rockwell Automation and Cedar Point launched a series of five youth-focused videos called, “It’s Not Magic, It’s Science!” The first video featuring attractions at Cedar Point, a 364-acre amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, launched on social media this week.
Hosted by STEM influencer Jay Flores, the videos share real-life examples of science, technology, engineering and math in action. Each video includes three parts: an experiment, an explanation of the science behind the experiment, and an application of the same concept in a park attraction.
The first video focuses on Ocean Motion, revealing the pendulum concepts behind the popular swinging ship ride. Watch the full Ocean Motion video here.
