Jun 24, 2022

Future railroaders, high school students, measured the tram's movement on it's 3,819 foot descent.

Eagerly, High School students lead the way up the Sandia Mountain on the longest aerial tram in the Americas. Mentors and researchers from SMILab followed close behind with equipment to track the swing and sway of the tramway. At elevation of 10,378 feet, students became familiar with new technology at a location more sensational than their conventional classroom. Utilizing their new knowledge and SMILab Arduino sensors, the future railroaders measured the tram's movement on the 3,819 foot descent.
