With assistance from representatives of the Long Island Explorium, fifth-grade students from Idle Hour Elementary School recently took their engineering capabilities to new heights as they crafted their own “rollercoasters.” During the activity, the young engineers were supplied a limited number of materials to work with in order to safely guide their “vessels” from the beginning of the track to the safety of the finish line. The students employed their critical thinking skills throughout, as they worked together to ensure that the most optimal pathways were taken in order to guarantee their vessels’ safety.
