Roller Coaster Run

All the fun of the fairground in this competitive workshop. You have to  build and keep your roller coaster running for as long as possible.

Our Roller Coaster Run encourages creativity and imagination. It’s great fun too. Children compete to build the longest possible ride on a roller coaster.

There are a number of problems to investigate and overcome. Children need to balance the interaction of energy, forces, friction and materials.  The goal is to make the best value roller coaster. Competition adds to the fun. Children work in teams to come up with the longest ride and most cost effective design.

Workshop leaders are on hand to answer any questions and sell materials. The rest is up to the children.
