ECS Roller Coaster Physics

What better way to apply the fundamentals of physics, engineering and math than to place a roller coaster in the hallway.  The photos below highlight engineering teacher Doug Klein teaching the principles of physics as participants such as Dean of Students John Noll prepare to apply the formulas on an actual roller coaster.  

Students at Elkhorn Crossing School participated in this real world lesson the day before their holiday break.  I hope the students enjoyed this real world application of lessons learned in the classroom as well as enjoy their holiday break.
