Today in STEAM we played the amazing coaster creator. I finally got around to making it, after fiddling with funderstanding coasters for a while (see previous blog). I named my ride Electric Yellow Shark, and I put the mass at 3 carts. Then I built my track. An initial hill, a slightly shorter hill, an even shorter hill, a mini loop, and an ending curve. I had to make many attempts, since of course I couldn't do it first try. I thought this game was amazing, and I can't wait to physically build a ride, which we will do later in the semester. If I could change anything about my coaster, I would have put more loops in it, because I found out that that was a better way to gain energy than the hills. Overall though, this game was a bomb, and I highly suggest trying it out!!
What I would have been like riding my coaster creator coaster!!
