Product Details

  • Addresses Next Generation Science Standards®: MS-PS3-2, MS-PS3-5, HS-PS3-1, HS-PS3-2, & HS-PS3-3.
  • Includes FREE 1-year access to digital resources that support three-dimensional instruction.

Grades 6–12. Explore roller coaster physics for a hands-on experience in energy transformation. Teams evaluate the descent of a sphere through loops, turns, and hills on a foam insulation track and then extend that knowledge to engineer the best structure for class challenges of highest hill, largest loop, or max velocity.

Materials support 15 design teams. Includes teacher's manual and student guide.
