Altoona High rollercoaster creations

Local News

Altoona High School students are flipping over physics, or at least doing loops. It’s for the annual rollercoaster project that sees physics students team up and create a coaster out of foam tubes or other materials. It must keep the marble on the track and contain a series of hills, loops or spirals.

Students like Gianna Marasco say their favorite part isn’t the physics, it’s the design around the coaster.
Her teacher, Mr Geis, says that’s a common response. He says the teams put in a minumum of 20 hours on this over the last 2 months.
