  • Mr. Jolley’s sixth-grade science class recently learned about Newton’s laws of motion by planning and creating a paper roller coaster. Students evaluated, tested, and retested their roller coaster to analyze and manipulate the forces of friction and gravity. 
They showed their work by demonstrating a marble changing from potential to kinetic energy as it moved through their course.

Excellent work students!
