Budding Engineer Builds Backyard Coaster: Green Boa

In assisting a young enthusiast with the creation of a backyard roller coaster, I provided guidance for three fundamental aspects of the project: cart construction, support structures, and basic principles of physics.
By detailing design considerations for the coaster cart, I made some suggestions to ensure a harmonious balance between safety and exhilarating thrills. I also gave insights into crafting sturdy support structures.
Fueled by an understanding of key physics principles relating to motion, I empowered the young engineer to orchestrate a backyard roller coaster that combines innovation, education, and adventure.
