Youngsville Life

Ping-pong ball rollercoasters was the final theme of Youngsville Library’s STEM-ulating Stories with Sara program. Kids had the opportunity to experiment with angles, slope, gravity, and inertia as they created a rollercoaster track – made out of drinking straws -for their ping-pong ball to “ride.” A very special thank you to Sara Robinson all her hard work, creativity, and dedication resulted in another year of summer STEM fun for all who participated.
