Create a Roller Coaster to Learn About Physics!

Cable in the Classroom has created a simulation game called Coaster Crafter that helps students from 5th to 12th grade learn physics. 

Storyline: Bruno, the owner of the coaster park, and Brunette, his daughter, has hired you as an intern to improve all the coasters. You will get to design your new coasters yourself, but first you will need to complete the design challenges that will teach you about:

  • Inertia
  • Velocity
  • Acceleration
  • Gravity
  • Mass
  • Friction
  • PE and KE
  • Momentum
