Manchester Science Festival - Snowtek 2018

Snowtek 2018-

Chill Factore Gadget and Gizmo Night

 

Come to Chill Factore on Sunday 21 October 6pm-10pm to show off your freestyle moves with a special science focus on technological gadgets to help you brave the cold, frost and snow this coming ski season.

 

Chill Factore has teamed up with experts from Snow+Rock and sports engineers from Manchester Metropolitan University to bring you a demo night with a difference. As part of the Manchester Science Festival, we show how science and engineering can help you produce top tricks and flips, but also stay safe on the slope and reduce the likelihood of sprains and strains.

 

Chill Factore will host a number of stands and demos at the foot of its indoor slope where you can learn about the latest scientific advances in snowsport engineering and technology, focusing on body armour, search and rescue devices, helmets and wrist protection. Chill Factore staff will be on hand to showcase the venues hi-tech equipment and programmes that help us run a safe and controlled environment 365 days of the year.

 

Tom Allen from Manchester Metropolitan University will focus on showcasing his wrist protection designs: his research has helped to develop the specifications for effective wrist protectors for snowboarders and he’ll be available to discuss the pros and cons of different designs. Tom’s team will show how they test wrist protectors in the lab and use a “surrogate arm” to investigate forces during a fall. Tom will also highlight the imminent new ISO standard for wrist protectors that boarders, so look out soon for certified products on the shelves!

 

Snow+Rock meanwhile will bring along a range of latest scientifically developed equipment and safety products for you to try on the slopes. A good chance to show off in style – and safely!

 

“Snowtek 2018” takes place during Chill Factore’s Boobytrap Freestyle Event, so visitors will have a great chance to see some of Manchester’s finest freestyle fanatics doing their best tricks and pick up tips on how to make snow sports safe.

 

Sunday 21 October to coincide with Chill Factore’s freestyle event. Time 6pm-10pm. reduced rate lift passes available on the night
