Science

Students participated in a really fun project to help them understand basic physics. They built roller coaster tracks for marbles using only paper and tape to see how much of an initial drop was required to get the marble to "loop the loop." It was a great way to learn about how stored energy (potential energy) is converted into the energy of motion (kinetic energy).
