Parameters like mass and friction can be changed. The constant interconversion between potential energy and kinetic energy is made visible in bar graphs and pie charts. On the “introduction” screen, friction is left out. On the “friction” screen, conversion to thermal energy due to friction is added. Besides a parabola-shaped track, two other tracks can be selected. In a further stage, the students can build their own track for the skateboarder to ride on. Ramps, jumps, and even loops are possible.

Information and ideas:
The “Energy skate park (teacher information)” teaching methods are available for teachers on the media portal of the Siemens Stiftung.
