8th Grade Roller Coaster Project

20180522_143818.jpg
The 8th graders culminating physics project was to design and create a roller coaster for a marble. This roller coaster utilized the 4 forces we learned about in class, had enough momentum to fulfill a loop, and had a slow down stop. Each group used their creativity, math skills and the scientific method to design, redesign, start over, and eventually create their coasters.

I am extremely impressed with their designs and their efforts in this project. They are a great class and glad to see they are ready for high school!
