Rollercoasters excite young focus groups

November 2, 2013


Granbury High School physics students dazzled younger students with new rollercoaster designs during presentations last week.

The older students developed proposals and a prototype design to replace the Texas Giant, the rollercoaster that had a tragic accident at Six Flags over Texas in Arlington during the summer.

Their younger counterparts took notes on which new rollercoaster would be the most safe – and the most fun.

“Each team worked tirelessly for weeks in order to design rollercoasters that promise to be both safe and fun for riders of any age,” commented GHS teacher Janel Morris.

The project based learning initiative included the students examining g-force and velocity as part of their design scheme.
