A 90 minute field trip designed for students in 3rd-5th grade to achieve skill, understanding and self-efficacy in the engineering design process.
Engaging videos and graphics guide instruction and provide opportunities for lively class discussions.
During this activity students will also learn vocabulary, a local inventor’s story, and the science concepts used for roller coaster design. The goal of the facilitation is to prepare students to confidently use the engineering design process to build a roller coaster prototype.
Learn all about roller coaster engineering!
Featuring interviews with real engineers!
