Life is a Rollercoaster


In this extremely exciting term we will be looking into the science and maths behind rollercoasters!


Our learning will look at: the forces involved when designing rollercoasters; approximating build and running costs; improving problem solving and decision making skills in relation to running a business and planning the layout for a brand new theme park.


We will also be getting to look at and test rollercoasters first hand when we visit Legoland Windsor.
