Roller Coaster | Trebound.com
THE ROLLER-COASTER CHALLENGE IS ONE OF THE MOST STIMULATING IDEAS EVER. IT REQUIRES TEAMS TO BUILD A STRUCTURE, USING ONLY THE FORCE OF GRAVITY, TO DISPLACE A BALL.
Teams are tasked with building a roller coaster out of wooden canes, pipes and zip ties in order to displace a ball from point A to point B. A minimum length and design brief need to be followed, along which each team builds a section of the track. Later these sections are put together to form a gigantic roller coaster which will act as a circuit to test using the rollers. The ball must use only gravity with no human intervention. Bonus points are awarded for loops, drops and spirals.
