Exploring Energy

Last week, sixth-grade students in Mr. Bedford's science classes explored acceleration by constructing roller coasters. They focused on the concepts of potential and kinetic energy.   
Students created structures to see what kind of impact would happen once they added a minecart to the design. Did it flow like a real roller-coaster, stop half-way up a loop, fall off the track?  These were the questions students probed as they used MinecraftEdu as their simulation tool.
