participate in this year’s Challenge Day. Students worked in
collaborative mixed-school teams to complete a challenge, flexing their
STEAM skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics).
After a brief introduction by Laura Woodburn, Director of Rides at
Hersheypark, about the concepts of force, velocity and friction, students
worked to create a dueling roller coaster for marble “people” out of
recycled materials. Students worked throughout the morning and then
presented their projects to the Hersheypark Rides team for evaluation.
