Roller Coaster Challenge

Roller Coaster

After studying the physics of a roller coaster, Poquoson Middle School students were tasked with the assignment of submitting a proposal that would create the next “GREAT” roller coaster. The goal was to determine how to get guests from point A to point B in the safest and most-thrilling way possible and remain under budget to win the bid for the proposal. Students created models using high density molded half round tubing to test their designs.
