Wave tank for children’s museum.
A Midwestern children’s museum wanted to add a new exhibit to show kids how waves form, propagate and dissipate in large bodies of water. They needed a waterproof tank 16-feet long, 5-feet tall and 1-foot deep.
The APS Solution:
We worked with the customer to design the tank with internal bracing, accommodation to “drop a weight” for wave formation, and a bezier curve to simulate the shoreline where the wave will dissipate. Naturally, the whole unit needed to be transparent so the children could watch the whole shebang unfold.
After thousands of kids made waves, we have happy kids and a happy customer.
