Free. This program is a three-part series for kids ages 6 through 11. They will use historic photos from the Charles E. Frohman Collection at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums to gain firsthand knowledge in history through science, technology, engineering and math initiatives.

During this  roller coaster session, students can learn about speed, strength, gravity and other principles of physics and engineering by building a roller coaster using a variety of materials. From 1892 to the present day, coasters have been a top attraction of Cedar Point amusement park for generations. Using the Frohman Collection photos, drawings and documents, students will analyze and build models of the 19th and 20th century coasters, comparing them to today’s coasters.
