Roller Coaster

26/02/2017 Session 1

This term in design we were told to do a second project of a roller coaster so we did they provide the materials that we can use for our roller coaster we are using tubes for the ball/ball bearings we have to include a loop d loop and a few humps and then you can do what ever you want to do with the roller coaster. Of course there has to be a way to get speed for our ball bearings to do the loop d loop so of course we can’t  start from the ground up so we make a support that can hold up the tracks. I have an idea that probably no one else has but i am not going to say anything it might work but it might not so hopefully works. This is my design

Today we figured out what we are using for our roller coasters. We are using these see-through tubes for the ball to go through. They are quit bendy and flexible. In our design we have to say all the details about the roller coaster. Like were the start is. Were the finish is. And say that gravity gives the ball speed. And friction keeps the ball on the ground. We still haven’t started the roller coaster so i am really existed for us to start building it.

Today in design we started making our roller coasters. We could make it in a group or by your self. I started by my self but then I joined a group. We started making it with masking tape but then Mr Colbert said that we are using to much tape so he got a bunch of Kinects for the frames. These are the tubs of Kinects

Today we made a loop in our design session. We made frames to hold the loop up. This is the photo of the loop.  And these are most of the materials that we are using.  We have 6 people in our group (we have the biggest group) after we made the loop we were told to throw away some of our martials away. This is a video that inspired me in our roller coaster.

Today in design we set up our roller coaster. And we thought that we could maybe add more to it. so we all came up with an idea in our design books. We all showed each other what we did and they were all like the same. so we started to find tubes and other things. After a little bit we couldn’t find much so we had to make do.

Today we set up our roller coaster first so we didn’t get the right marble that would fit. We had a little experiment with the marbles. We had big and small ones but they just didn’t fit. So we had to update our design we couldn’t find much extra things. We went to the store room and we found some extra parts to go with our roller coaster.

Today we started a whole new roller coaster. And we had to start a new. design This is a photo of our  design and roller coaster.   And this is a video of the making of the roller coaster. IMG_1698-2h01pc3

20/03/2017 Session 8

today we joined with a group like every other group. And we made it bigger but we are still trying to figure out how to put it together. We have to make the bottom of our roller coaster level with the top of the other roller coaster.

22/03/2017 Session 9

today we found out what to use to make the roller coaster taller (Mrs Watson told us what to use). we emptied out one of the pencil case boxes and we put it under the roller coaster and it was tall enough. it fit right in to the tube.
