Paper Roller Coasters! – Tuesday February 21, 3:00 PM

Posted by Melissa Orth on January 20th, 2017

The 6th grade book club members are testing a program Cornerstones of Science and Teen Services of Curtis Library will host during February vacation: paper roller coasters.

Using purchased templates printed on card stock, a paper cutter and scissors, foam core base, rulers, pens, and lots and lots of tape, the five male members of book club started work on forming the first level structure of what will eventually be a fun marble run, complete with loops, tight curves, spirals, and big drops.

These are the supplies. What will the finished project look like?
