Pizza Coaster! - Day 2 - Mark Day School

Mark Day Pizza (2017)Brendon BellComment

Our first full build day! With tool training and project designs under our belts, we jumped straight into building the first parts of our pizza coaster masterpiece.

The team working on the start section began constructing two tall towers which the pizza will fall/roll from gaining momentum to carry it along the length of the track. 

Henry testing out the foundations stability. Don't be fooled by his expression - we gave it a thumbs up!

Measure twice...or three times...

Cut once! 

One team also began assembling the pizza box that will transport the pizza safely along the roller coaster.

The track team began work on constructing a ramp prototype. It was a challenge to figure out how tall the track side rails needed to be to keep the cart from rolling off the edge.

A successful test!

And we even had time to begin constructing and testing the zipline!

We made a ton of progress today! Can't wait to see what this amazing group creates tomorrow!
