Product Description
This lab is EASY PREP, it's hands-on, students are engaged, it includes many physics concepts, it’s STEM, AND you get two of my top selling products in one! I include detailed TEACHER NOTES, student copy, a PREZI for scaffolding, a Kinetic and Potential Energy Card Sort, an Energy Conversion Chart and a KEY for easy grading and prep.
Students use parts of the engineering design process to get their marble to stop by using friction, just like a real roller coaster. Students pretend like they are engineers trying to get a contract from Knott’s Berry Farm to build a fun and safe roller coaster!
Materials:
Tubing/Plumbing insulation from Home Depot, marbles, masking tape, meter sticks and timers (I let them use their phones).
THIS INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING CONCEPTS:
Kinetic energy, potential energy, rolling friction, fluid friction, static friction, momentum, gravity, acceleration and centripetal force and engineering.

TIMELINE FOR THE STEM ROLLER COASTER LAB
1) USING PREZI DO 20 MINUTES OF NOTES AND CLASS DISCUSSION.
2) CARD SORT AND CLASS DISCUSSION 20 MINUTES OR 50 MINUTES IF YOU DO CARD SORT, CLASS DISCUSSION AND FILL IN THE ENERGY CONVERSIONS HANDOUT.
3) 30 MINUTES DISCUSSING, SKETCHING AND DESIGNING PROTOTYPE.
4) 15 MINUTES OF MODELING & TIPS. THEN 1 HOUR 30 MINUTES OF BUILDING & COLLECTING DATA.
5) QUESTIONS AND SKETCHES ARE HOMEWORK.
6) 40 MINUTES OF GRADING, DISCUSSING, REVISTING AND ADDRESSING MISCONCEPTIONS WITH THE CLASS.
