Letís Get Excited about Roller Coasters! 5 to 9
(5.0 stars, 1 ratings)
An amusement park has decided to open a theme park to be located in Waikoloa Village, Hawaii. It is an exciting time for the citizens of Waikoloa Village. Finally, this small town will be put on the map for something big. The residents are anxiously anticipating the grand opening of the amusement park. However, the operators of the amusement park need your help. They want to design a new roller coaster with a car that runs as smoothly as a marble would down the track. Your team has been hired to design this new roller coaster track for this theme park. Your task is to design a model of the track you would like to build for this amusement park. Your model must demonstrate the law of conservation of energy, gravity, force, momentum, and especially kinetic and potential energy.
