End your with a BANG! This ready-to-implement resource is the perfect project to assess your students' knowledge of Force and Motion.
In this STEM activity, students will act as engineers (hired by a local theme park) to design and build a prototype for a new and more exciting ride. Students will be provided with 2-3 days worth of research and planning and will then work in groups to design, build, test and revise their project. At the completion of this project, students will present their designs to a "board of directors" and the winning design will be the newest feature of the local theme park. This STEM activity is a favorite in my Physical Science class and is sure to become a favorite in your class too.
⭐⭐⭐NEWLY ADDED: A that includes a paper roller coaster template that can be printed and built at home.
