Builder Workshop: The Great Coaster Challenge!   

Participants in this hands-on program will act as Theme Park Engineers to design and build a prototype roller coaster for our theme park. Engineers will work in groups of 2-4 to plan and build their coaster. They will need to manage materials and resources, as well as time to build a functioning roller coaster. At the end of the activity, we will give each group of engineers the chance to demonstrate their creation, and we will evaluate the success of each coaster.

South Carolina School Standards Connections: This workshop is based on the Engineering Practices Stanard for all Elementary and Middle school grades.
