Ocean Park Cable Car Rope RePLAYcement STEM Workshop for kids

372

18th October 2021 – (Hong Kong)  Operating since 1977, Ocean Park Cable Car is one of the oldest cable car systems in the world. It turns out that the operator has to replace the cable car rope every five years so that it can maintain smooth daily operations for many years.

Ocean Park is launching its first Cable Car Rope RePLAYcement STEM Workshop this November, to offer our young participants a chance to witness this special moment. Its professional educators will lead them to visit the Cable Car back of house area with their parents, to learn about rope replacement from our French cable car specialist, and then head over to the workshop to understand the mechanism and even build a simple cable car system themselves — the dream experience for any curious little STEM fan!

Key Features
A First-Hand Observation

Guided by a specialist, your visit to the Cable Car back of house area will allow you to observe the cable car system and clamps from a professional perspective, as well as a special moment that takes place only once every five years.

An Edutaining STEM Workshop

By building a simple cable car system at the STEM Workshop, you can gain insight into the physics of the system, techniques of cable splicing, and secrets of engineering, and unleash creativity by decorating your own cable car model! 

A Rare Photo Opportunity
This memorable learning journey also includes an actual cable car ride, so you can really experience the workload involved in the replacement project and its importance. What’s more, you’ll have the rare opportunity of taking a photo with the working site to show family and friends while telling them all about this amazing experience!

Participants will receive an Attendance Certificate of the Cable Car Rope RePLAYcement STEM Workshop to mark the end of a fruitful journey!
