Roller Coaster Physics Online Project

1. Go to and read about the energy conversion in a roller coaster.

2. Go to and read the first page. Then click on "How did coasters come to be? Read more about their history" and read about roller coaster history. Then click on "Back to Roller Coaster" which will bring you back to the start. Click on "Design a Roller Coaster" and follow the instructions. Make sure you click on the "safety inspection" after you are done with the design. Try out more than one design also.

3. Go to and use the simulation to try out different roller coaster designs. Change the height of the initial hill, loop, and second hill. Start a new track and design your own layout. Watch what happens depending on what you do with the design.

4. Go to and read all about Roller Coasters.

5. If you have time, go to and try out the roller coaster game. See how well you do.
