In this video from Teaching High School Physical Science, teacher Michael Griffin discusses how he prepares his students for physics day at an amusement park. He describes his goals for the lesson, and in the classroom, reviews the concepts of motion that are relevant to amusement park rides, including roller coasters.

What goes into designing a successfull roller coaster loop? In the "Roller Coaster Marbles: How Much Height to Loop the Loop?" #science project, students build a roller coaster for marbles using foam pipe insulation and investigate how height is related to the movement of a marble through a loop.

You've bought your ticket and boarded the roller coaster. Now you're barreling down the track at 60 miles per hour, taking hairpin turns and completing death-defying loops. Your heart is in your throat and your stomach is somewhere near your shoes. The only thing separating you from total disaster is a safety harness...but are you really in danger?

What accounts for the shiny and colorful side of a data CD? In the "Using a Laser Pointer to Measure the Data Track Spacing on CDs and DVDs" #science project, students use a laser pointer to explore CD diffraction patterns and track spacing.
