Saint Leo eighth graders recently created gravity-powered rollercoasters in Science class after studying force and motion. The top three coasters from the class entered into the Roller Coaster Contest at California’s Great America Physics, Math & Science Day. The eighth grade spent the day at Great America, riding rollercoasters and completing a math scavenger hunt. The day was topped by one of St. Leo’s coasters was awarded “Most Likely to Be Built by Great America.” Congratulations to ​Sarah deMattos, Erica Barandica, Ella Schnaars, and Sarah San Miguel. ​
