8th GradeMarble Roller Coaster Building Challenge

During Trimester 1, Eighth grade participated in a Marble Roller Coaster Building Challenge that aligns with our adoption of the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). These new standards encourage students to also learn about the design aspects of science. The students were only allowed to use specific materials to make the design more challenging.  We applied our current unit on Force and Motion and made connections to the development of the roller coasters. The 8th grade then competed against one another.
