Roller Coaster Project

The 8th graders culminating physics project was to design and create a roller coaster for a marble, that utilized the four 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.

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