Let’s go for a ride! The physics of roller-coasters.


This is a scientific project to explaining the concepts of motion and energy, as studied in physics lessons, through the use of these concepts in attractions in amusement parks. The project aims at stimulating a wider view of science. The students will form mixed-nationality-groups to search information on attractions and describe the physics involved in it. So, the students will broaden their understanding and improve their social competence and language skills. To make the experience more realistic, the students will build simple models of the attractions and make visits to an amusement park or to a manufacturer of attraction-wheels.
