The Science Fair Results

The Science Fair was held this week.  Son's project was to build two different types of roller coasters out of K-nex and determine which style is faster.  Check this post out for the first Coaster.  It ended up being a really cool project.  Unfortunately, I had to help build the coasters and I am not a good choice for working with picture plans and things that snap together.    Plus I have trouble imagining the finished product.  Son says its cause I'm a girl.

So, here are pictures and another movie of the second coaster:

here's how it all started
