Applying Potential and Kinetic Energy

At Perelman, studying physics — the science of matter, motion, and energy - starts early.

While exploring potential and kinetic energy, our second grade students and future physicists answered the question: What is the minimum height required to get a marble over a roller coaster loop and into a cup? By collaborating with classmates, students ran experiments through a series of trials, resulting in ultimate success.
