Students in Tim Murphy’s Project Lead the Way science of technology class at Nesaquake Middle School were recently tasked with designing their own roller coasters. Students performed test runs for their roller coaster experiment while following certain criteria and constraints. They designed their tracks to collect data pertaining to potential and kinetic energy of their roller coaster at given points throughout track.
