Visitors created head spinning thrills as they built their own rollercoaster—from design to testing, and then re-testing. Visitors found out how slopes, loops, hills, curves, gravity and speed make a difference on how things move as they navigated balls through a variety of track designs. They made discoveries about force and energy, about friction and stability all the while having lots of fun.
The Motion Mania! exhibit was developed by Ontario Science Centre.
What you learned:
- Observation, investigation, questioning, and experimentation
- Physics—gravity, speed, momentum
This exhibit was on view May 16 – September 6, 2015.
