ROLLERCOASTERS & MINECRAFT ENGINEERING - DESIGN AND BUILD

Grades 3rd through 8th

YOUR DREAM COASTER AND MINECART RIDE - HANDS-ON CONSTRUCTION AND & MINECRAFT VIRTUAL DESIGN

ROLLERCOASTERS & MINECRAFT ENGINEERING
DESIGN AND BUILD

Who doesn’t love roller coasters and amusement parks?

Some of the most thrilling rides in any amusement park are the rollercoasters. In this exciting camp we will learn about science and engineering. Campers will learn about the physics of roller coasters while exploring kinetic and potential energy, and centripetal force. At camp you’ll build and test, physical and “virtual” roller coaster models. Using various computer programs, including Minecraft, you will create virtual roller coasters in MInecraft, build scale models of famous rollercoasters with K’NEX CONSTRUCTION ELEMENTS and experience the thrill of the turns, loops and drops!

Design Your Minecart Ride- Use your Imagination and surprise your passengers this summer! The Greatest Minecart Rides can be designed by you. No boring rides for our campers!.

Think of your ride as a showcase for how clever you can be, rather than how many twists or turns you can make, or how many times you can show the same room or landscape from a different angle.

Campers will use their imaginations to design a rollercoaster in Minecraft and a Minecart Ride like no other! Remember, for the duration of the ride, your passenger is a captive audience; they have to look at what you show them. Take advantage of that!

Your minecart ride will be almost like a short video… it can tell a story, evoke an emotion through atmosphere, or even use music.

So, unleash your creativity, but leave everything that you’ve learned from real-life roller coasters behind and take a stab at our newest redstone competition on roller coaster rides!

Rollercoasters Design and Minecraft – a perfect blend of engineering fun and learning to engage and excite our curious campers!

Don’t miss it this summer!
