The September Science Saturday topic was “Roller Coasters”, presented by Nicole Esposito, Research Associate at IHMC. Students designed and constructed simple roller coasters using plastic tubing, in order to learn about and experiment with the physics concepts that apply to roller coasters. The focus was on kinetic energy, potential energy, and friction. Photos by Elizabeth Royappa.
