In Ms. Ashley's science class, students created their own rollercoasters today. They used marbles as the "cars". They had to identify where the kinetic and potential energy was as the marbles traveled down the track. They were challenged to add multiple hills and loops and how changing the height and size of the marble affected the ride down.
