Exploring Energy in The Big Lab

4th Graders went to the California Science Center, where they explored kinetic and potential energy, friction, and the force of gravity. They got a practical application of lesson by making miniature rollercoasters consisting of rubber tracks held in place using pegs that fit into the wall. Students could experiment with the effects the various positioning of the pegs would have in helping them meet their objective of successfully getting a ball from one end of the track to the other.
