Roller Coasters by Dr. Jerry Pratt, IHMC
April 21, 2018
The last Science Saturday of the 2017-18 school year was presented by Jerry Pratt, Senior Research Scientist at IHMC. Students worked in groups to build roller-coasters out of paper. They learned to understand the various parts of roller coasters, to construct solid platforms, and to make exciting design elements. The generosity of the Spring 2018 season sponsors Cox (Premier Sponsor), the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office (with law enforcement trust fund monies), and Gulf Power, helped make this cost-free STEM program possible. We also appreciate the participation of volunteers from Gulf Breeze, Pensacola, Washington, and West Florida High Schools.
