Students will design a variety of chain reactions to demonstrate their knowledge of potential and kinetic energy. Students explore the physics needed by engineers in designing today's roller coasters, including potential and kinetic energy, friction and gravity. First, they learn that all true roller coasters are completely driven by the force of gravity and that the conversion between potential and kinetic energy is essential to all roller coasters. Second, they consider the role of friction in slowing down cars in roller coasters. Finally, they examine the acceleration of roller coaster cars as they travel around the track. The Rollercoaster Building Set, Swing Ride Building Set, Motorized Marble Run Set with Elevator, and the Marble Genius Jumps & Swings will support students as they take on the role of an Engineer through designing, building and analyzing the models they create.
