Rollercoasters
Students in Mrs. Bostick's Physics class constructed roller coasters out  of foam insulation, tape and marbles. They did this to better  understand  the concepts of kinetic energy, potential energy,  acceleration and velocity. Each roller coaster was required to have at  least one loop and a corkscrew curve. The marble had to complete the  track without stopping or falling off.  They did a great job and had  lots of fun.
