Build a Roller Coaster

Step 3 of 6: Assemble the track

Your “car” (the marble) needs kinetic energy at the beginning of the roller coaster so that it can make it through the entire course. How should the tubing for the beginning of the roller coaster be positioned? Use tape and various supports to create the starting point.

Use the tubing, tape and supports to build the rest of your roller coaster. Try to include at least one loop, hill and jump.
