Singleton High School

Rollercoasters

Students design, produce, promote and evaluate a rollercoaster mainly constructed from paper that allows a ball bearing to move from start to finish in the slowest time possible. The track is of a predetermined length and must contain mandated elements. Students design a starting gate that must be used to begin the ball’s motion from the beginning of the rollercoaster without it being touched.
