In our class, we love science! We love it because we get to make cool stuff. But yesterday, we made the COOLEST thing ever! We made a roller coaster. But it wasn't a roller coaster for us, it was for a marble! So don't get confused. We made the track out of styrofoam runways. We had to tape them together to make the roller coaster go all the way across the classroom. We made loop-de-loops and hills all along it. We had to tape it to the SMARTboard projector to make it high enough to make it around the whole track. We learned that if it starts high, then the marble will get enough force from gravity to make it. Then we tried it. Zoom! A marble came zipping by! We had to try a few times, and it didn't work. Each time, we had to figure out what went wrong and fix it. But at the end, it was AWESOME!
