The 2020 Physics Rollercoaster Convention was held March 11 at the AAHS Library. The rollercoaster project is the 3rd marking period benchmark for the Academic Physics class. This year's rollercoasters did not disappoint.
A wide-variety of styles and designs, each rollercoaster design had to meet specific guidelines including the number of features (twists, turns, loops, etc.), certain dimensions, and obtain all of its mechanical energy from its actual design. Additionally, the design had to carry a marble from start to finish without it falling off the track.
AAHS students from other classes visited the convention and were able to use a marble to test the rollercoasters and then submit an electronic vote for their favorite coaster.
