If you want a great lesson plan involving roller coaster physics, take a look at Amusement Park Physics and Take a Roller Coaster Ride.


  1. I really like the Spark Lab and Roller Coaster Creator site. This is a fun way for students to learn about and practice force, energy, and motion.

  2. I is wonderful way of teaching conservation of energy ,For students to learn about physics in this way will be a fun.
