Transcript of Paper Roller Coaster

Paper Roller Coaster
Created By:
Andrea Cisneros, Ricardo Arreola, Joseph Barrajas, Samantha Hernandez, and Briant Morales
How we built it
Step 1:Identify the problem
Step 2: Research the problem
Step 3: Develop possible solutions
Step 4: Select the best solution
Step 5: Create a prototype
Step 6: Test and evaluate
Step 7: Redisign
Step 8: Communicate the solution

The forces of our roller coaster
when the roller coaster goes up the rail it has [maximum] potential energy
when the roller coaster goes down the trail it has [maximum] kinetic enery
There is friction when the roller coaster stops
Potential energy: energy that you have, that can be used
Kinetic energy: the energy that is being used
Force: strenght or energy as an attribute of physical action or movement
Gravity: the force that is pulling us foward the earth
Challenges we faced building the roller coaster
- One challenge was building the parts and setting it up.
- Coming up with our roller coaster sketch
- cutting and gluing parts together

Our goal:
MS-PS3-2. Develop a model to describe that when the arrangement of objects interacting at a distance changes, different amounts of potential energy are stored in the system.
MS-PS3-5. Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.
Students will apply their skills in reading and writing, as well as knowledge in scientific research to gather and synthesize information to design and built an operational paper roller coaster.
