Have your students review the concepts of kinetic and potential energy by designing and testing an online roller coaster. The students will use the National Geographic online simulator to design a roller coaster, hills, loops and all and test their creation. This is a great resource to reinforce the concepts of kinetic and potential energy and will also foster creative thinking while problem solving. Have fun creating because it is addicting once you start!
* The worksheet consists of review questions and a data chart to fill in as they try to achieve a specific score on their roller coaster.
