Today you are going to apply some of the information that you have been learning
in class to some real-life rollercoasters. You are going to study the history
of the original ride called the "cyclone", look at some of the fastest coasters,
some of the biggest coasters, and also look at some of the new rides that
will open in the summer of 1997. At any time, click on the blue or purple
words to see that information. Remember to come "back" so that you can answer
the questions. HAVE FUN!

1. Using the materials in the library, design and build your own working
coaster and bring me a polaroid picture.
2. Pick up a copy of the "Fun with Physics" sheets from Mr. Amerson and take a trip to AstroWorld. You'll also need a stop watch. Bring the sheets back completed, and have fun.
