Rollercoaster Physics

Education Award Logo

Take charge of your own K’Nex ride in a session which explores the physics behind a rollercoaster. Conduct an experiment to explore the variables which affect whether a carriage will be able to ‘loop-the-loop’.

Children will get the chance to hold real rollercoaster parts as they explore forces and energy types in this interactive workshop. This session is also great as part of a ride design topic.
