This exceptional Roller Coaster Engineering kit offers your child a fun introduction to physics and engineering through the topic of roller coasters!

You can design, build and experiment with over 10 working roller coaster models as you learn about the physics behind force, motion and potential energy.

Piece together the sturdy frame structures using the easy modular building system, then attach the flexible track to build and test your designs!

Then, experiment by varying the slope, length, and weight of the cars for a practical introduction to kinetic energy, free fall, velocity, friction and projectile motion!

Conduct over 20 exciting engineering experiments along the way!

  1. Can you build a loop-de-loop?
  2. What is the longest straightaway you can construct?
  3. How long or tall can you build a roller coaster?
  4. Can you construct two successful vertical loops in one circuit?

Your kit includes:

  • 305 durable and re-usable parts (including adjustable weight cars and a spring-powered launcher)
  • A full colour manual with step by step assembly instructions and scientific explanations

You will also need: Small Phillips head screwddriver, large coins and adhesive tape.

Note: While the manual touches on some fairly advanced physics concepts, your child will learn simply by playing with the models and observing how the roller coaster trains behaves in each experiment. 

Recommended for ages 8-14 and up.
