From biology to physics now, and the incredible forces that come into play at the Lightwater Valley Theme Park. Lightwater is home to some incredibly thrilling rides, some of which rely purely on the forces of gravity to make your stomach drop! The Ultimate rollercoaster’s cars builds up potential energy as they are hauled to the top of the first hill on the ride. The higher the car the more stored energy there is, this is then transferred into kinetic energy as the car moves at speed down the hill. The diggers at Diggerland Yorkshire would have been built to dig trenches, holes, foundations, they would have even been involved in forestry work and river dredging. But how do they work? Hydraulics control the arm of the digger; hydraulics is an applied science using engineering, chemistry, and other sciences involving the mechanical properties and use of liquids! The Hepworth Wakefield has some of the most awe-inspiring architecture in Yorkshire, the building’s façades have been constructed of pigmented concrete which was created in-situ. This gives the building a sculptural appearance, which echoes the shapes and forms in many of Barbara Hepworth’s sculptures, showing how art and science marry together perfectly!
