Alvin's Paper Rollercoaster

For the end of the school year, the older students did something fun. They built paper roller coasters! The only supplies they were allowed to use included a cardboard base, a pad of paper, scotch tape, scissors, and a marble. 

Here, Alvin shows his paper roller coaster, which includes many chutes, runs, a drop, a bowl, and a loop-d-loop. There were many challenges, including structure stability, lack of gravity, and "accidents" from being bumped around. Great job Alvin! Enjoy the show!
