Eisco® Garage Physics™: Ball Bearing Roller Coaster Kit

(backordered: in stock 9/2/22)


Students can explore gravitational potential energy and translational and rotational kinetic energy with this fun ball bearing roller coaster. Devise competitions where students design and build 20-ft tracks of transparent tubing that send steel ball bearings careening through loops, dives, and corkscrews. Competitions can include designing the fastest or slowest track or the one with the most loops. The transparent tubing provides the option of using a photogate (not included).

Safely attach the included hooks to the wall and tie up your tubular track with ease. Advanced studies can investigate rotational kinetic energy, which accounts for more than 20% of the total kinetic energy. Kit comes with a step-by-step educational guide.
