PROBLEM: Can you design a railway system that can service a community?



MATERIALS: train set

Look at the train set that is set up. When it is your turn as the engineer, think about the following questions. Then return to your seat and answer them.

  1. Describe the design of the tracks? 
  2. Name the parts of the train?
  3. If the curves of the track are not designed correctly, what will happen and why?

Below is the community of North City.  They want to put a railway through their community to help service the big factories. Design a system for the tracks. (Remember, you can make tunnels, bridges, whatever you feel can be made.)
