The Law of Conservation of Energy is verified by measuring the potential and kinetic energy of a car traveling over hills and loops on a curved track.
This roller coaster system was designed by an actual roller coaster designer and is the most efficient roller coaster system in the world! Its low coefficient of friction allows the train to perform like its full-size counterpart.
The provided curriculum includes labs that are geared toward groups of 3-5 students and roller coaster assembly instructions for the standard loop layout. It's rigid track makes for extremely repeatable results. The train will stand up over time and repeated use - it's super-durable and resistant to breakage.
As an added bonus, 3 flex tracks are included for an advanced layout you can create yourself. The flex track can be twisted into any shape imaginable and kits can be combined into larger coasters. This coaster's flexibility is limited only by the laws of physics and your imagination!
Timer and Photogates, and Ring Stands are sold separately.
