Generate excitement in the classroom by constructing a complete roller coaster and improve students’ understanding of the laws of motion! Eleven different roller coasters can be built. Students will experiment with loop-the-loop tracks, half-pipes and inclined planes with curves and loops as they investigate many physics concepts, including velocity, kinetic energy, potential energy, rotational motion, centripetal force, gravity and Newton’s laws of motion. A perfect set of hands-on materials for any physics class!
Includes enough materials for 11 different models and a 61-page comprehensive Teacher’s Guide on CD-ROM. The roller coaster models can be built one at a time while the inclined planes, hills and loop systems can be built two at a time. Also includes a full-color, 59-page building instruction guide for two basic models and CD-ROM with instructions for variations of the basic models. 2025 pieces packaged in three durable plastic storage tubs.
