For our physics project, we (Denise and Frank) built a wooden roller coaster model. Using this model, we then calculated the g-forces on the roller coaster. In this instructable we explain how we have built the roller coaster.
Step 1: Supplies
• Ice cream sticks (amount depends on the size of the roller coaster)
• Wood glue
• Skewers (amount depends on the size of the roller coaster)
• Drill bit (same size as the skewers)
• Strips lakboard
• MDF board
• Cable clips
• Any other clamps
• Cart. In our case a lego lego train cart with wheels (these wheels have a flange, which ensures that the cart stays nicely on the track)
Step 2: Drilling
Drill two holes in each stick, about 0.5 cm from each end.
We had a template that we used every time, so we knew each time that the holes were in the right place.
Step 3: Construction
We chose a roller coaster with a hill. You can create your own design by constructing a different structure.
