Meet a roller coaster engineer and discover the way electricity and magnets launch coasters to top speed! Interactive demonstrations of science and engineering concepts only require your hands. Students will design their own roller coaster!

Class experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their understanding of how engineers use the scientific concepts of electricity and magnetism to solve real-world problems in the area of roller coasters and amusement park entertainment.
After engineering two roller coasters for Universal Studios, I have spent the last 20 years teaching kids about the wonderful world of amusement parks and how engineering makes it all possible!
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Penn State University.
Paper and something to draw/color with (for roller coaster design project).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
