Join Our List
Imagination Brought To Life.
Join us for Roller Coaster Builds & Engineering and learn to create your own cool model-sized roller coasters with K’NEX® kits and incredibly epic digital roller coasters using Roblox and Minecraft™!
In addition to having tons of fun and building skills in design and construction, students also learn basic concepts in physics such as gravity, mass, inertia, velocity, acceleration, and potential energy, that they can apply when building the ultimate roller coaster.
Working in teams, students use K’NEX® to build motorized roller coasters by working with interlocking plastic rods, connectors, blocks, gears, wheels, and other components, which can be pieced together to form a wide variety of models, machines, and architectural structures. K’NEX roller coasters take hundreds of pieces to build, making it a truly epic experience. Students can build with instructions and/or use their own skills to add modifications to their roller coasters.
Using Minecraft™ and Roblox as learning tools, students utilize various skills to create and customize their own virtual roller coasters. In Roblox, they will be able to build their own virtual theme park with their own unique rideable roller coasters. Videos will help them understand exactly how roller coasters work and to understand physics concepts.
At the end of the course, each team gives a demonstration of their final roller coaster designs and hosts an amusement park experience. Limited admission!
