Model Roller Coasters

25 June 2020

Our Year 7 girls have enjoyed a busy term studying Physics, culminating in the construction of their very own model roller coasters!

During Term Two they have learnt about different types of forces and how they can be measured. They also compared the difference between energy transfer and transformation, learnt how they could maximise the potential energy and the effects of friction on braking distance. The girls discussed the Law of Energy Conservation at various points of their design with all of this theory “rolling” up nicely into how a roller coaster works.
