8th Graders Use Makerspace to Build Rollercoasters


Last month, Mrs. Wendy Hutchison's & Mr. James Doran's 8th grade science students visited the makerspace for an introductory lesson on force and motion. Students built rollercoasters using Quercetti rollercoaster systems and tested how mass and height affect potential and kinetic energy. Special thanks to library media specialist Mrs. Jen Kosior for assisting with this hands-on experience!
