Student Objective: Students will apply science ideas to design, test, and redesign a roller coaster that converts potential energy into kinetic energy.


4.PS3.1 Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.

4.PS3.3 Ask questions and predict outcomes about the changes in energy that occur when objects collide.

4.PS3.4 Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

Essential Question:

How can we improve a roller coaster design?

How does a roller coaster convert potential energy into kinetic energy?
