This quarter, our Honors Physics students have been hard at work learning about energy, gravity and centripetal force. To put what they learned into practice, their teacher, Mr. Duncan, had groups build their very own roller coasters! Mr. Duncan gave groups a month to complete the project. Each roller coaster constructed had to have a loop and a turn. They also had to be considered safe and slow.
Last week, Mr. Duncan had the groups give business pitches for their roller coasters, and also had them demonstrate to classmates and other teachers how they would work, based on their formulas and construction.
