roller coaster

Roll up, roll up!  You’re going on a day trip to a theme park to soak up the unique sights, smells and sounds of the fair.

Learn about the science behind roller coasters and write poems that are shaped as a loop the loop.  Design your own theme park and show your ideas on a digital map.

Testing testing!  Time for some mini investigations.  Cam mechanisms, pendulums, pulleys and prototypes.  Let’s go behind the scenes to see forces at work.

Good news!  The engineers at ‘Scream Towers’ love your work and want you to build a death-defying new drop ride for a theme park.  Make a wroking model and test it out with uncooked eggs.  Cracking stuff!

Okay, ready to ride?  Don’t forget to scream if you want to go faster!
