As part of a lesson on kinetic and potential energy, Hampton Bays Middle School seventh-graders in Tonianne Dossiano’s class recently constructed roller coasters in their school’s hallway to study the law of conservation of energy as it applies to loops and hills. The students, said Dossiano, were fully engaged in the hands-on lesson that took science out of the textbook.
