Looking for a different and engaging way to introduce your class to energy, specifically potential and kinetic energy. In this inquiry activity students will use interactive simulations to learn about energy through roller coaster design, testing, and more. Students discover how roller coasters work, how to construct a working roller coaster, and how energy changes throughout the ride. For more advanced students, they will get to a bonus simulation and explore different variables that affect energy transformations beyond just the two main categories of energy.
