Coaster Creator

by Marjee Labs_gone_digital

Coaster Creator is an interactive game that explores the science behind roller coasters. Use your knowledge of potential energy and kinetic energy to design your own coaster. Rapid energy transfer is the key to roller coaster thrills but be careful — too much kinetic energy and you’ll crash, too little and you'll stall. Play this beta version of the game and find out if your coaster will be a smash or a snore! http://www.jason.org/PublicPage/Curriculum/CoasterCreator.aspx
