Now that you have completed your research and practiced with virtual roller coasters, let’s build the real thing! Within your group, design the model, list the materials needed, collect the materials (if not provided), and start testing your ideas! Perfect your model and be prepared to demonstrate your roller coaster engineering skills to the rest of your peers! Your roller coaster will be graded several items, such as whether or not you followed directions and remained on task, if your coaster actually worked, and the fun level of your coaster!
• Apply specific laws of motion to the design of a simple model roller coaster.
• Design a model roller coaster track and test it using a model roller coaster.
