C. Roller Coaster-Building Challenge!

Instructions (Part I): Carefully watch the following video to see how a jump can be successfully integrated into a foam marble roller coaster.

Instructions (Part II): Your challenge is to build a jump for your marble on the coaster and also create a self-supported structure using materials from the “Earthquake-Proof Building” activity. Your marble will fly through this structure during its jump. For instance, you might construct a stand with a larger square or ring at the top through which the marble travels in the air.

Instructions (Part III): Once you are satisfied with your jump and structure prototype, record a video of your marble completing the jump through the structure Enter your first name in the “Subject” field. Below, you will find a QR code to simplify the upload process.
