The PASCO Roller Coaster Complete System makes it easy for students to set up any number of track configurations as well as get quantitative measurements.

Using the rigid support pegs and the white board support panels (use a dry erase pen to make notes or calculations right on the panels) the track can be setup quickly and easily and in a variety of manners.

Photogates can be added at many positions around the track to measure the low friction Mini Car’s velocity.  Create a simple incline to measure constant acceleration, a traditional coaster for conservation of energy, a loop for centripetal acceleration or even a brachistochrone to show that the car following that path will take less time than the straight line path.
