Coaster Poster

Now that you’re a pro on designing roller coasters and explaining the physics behind them, it’s time to prove your knowledge to Schumacher’s Science Superland.

Create a COASTER POSTER including:

  • Name of your coaster
  • Neat drawing of your model coaster in black pen
  • Measurements of major elements
  • Marble’s average speed
  • Indicate where KE and PE are the greatest and the least
  • A brief written description of:
    1. How does the coaster’s starting height affect the marble?
    2. How might the mass of the coaster (marble) affect its speed and energy?

Put your names on the back and turn this in!
