Rollercoaster Games
Race around all day long on your very own rollercoaster. You can make the climbs as steep as you like, the corners as fast and be sure to make people really nauseous by including some loopings.

## Roller Coaster Lab

Design a roller coaster using pipe insulation, clear tubes, masking tape, a marble, your table, and a chair (optional). The roller coaster should begin high and end on the floor. After your roller coaster has been built and tested, make the appropriate measurements/calculations.

Energy: Potential & Kinetic

In Energy: Potential & Kinetic, students discover that kinetic energy is related to objects in motion while potential energy is stored, just waiting to be put to use. Explore how increasing potential energy translates to more kinetic energy with compelling, real-life examples. Fast-paced visuals illustrate how these forms of energy are related and how stored energy is continually converted to moving energy and back again. In a fun experiment, students investigate the effect of gravity on an object's potential energy and learn how to measure the energy of objects by determining their mass, speed and position. Part of the multivolume Energy in Action Video Series.
