Science of Roller Coasters + Minecraft | Grades 2 -4 | Week 8
Amusement Parks are filled with lots of heart pounding fun, as well as multiple opportunities to learn about science and engineering. In this exciting camp, learn about the physics of roller coasters while exploring kinetic and potential energy, and centripetal force. At camp you’ll build and test, physical and “virtual” roller coaster models. Using various computer programs, including Minecraft, you will create virtual roller coasters, build scale models with K’NEX and experience the thrill of the turns, loops and drops! The camp day is divided into 3 periods. Two thirds of the day is spent working on science and engineering of roller coasters and approximately one third of the day is dedicated to working with Minecraft. No prior experience is necessary! All skill levels are welcome.
