As part of a two-class series entitled "Science Fun!", Bay Village Library children's staff member Peg Tomek challenged 13 students in grades 4-6 to build marble loop-de-loop roller coasters using a marble, insulation tubing, tape, boxes and a chair along with their own creativity.

The groups of happy engineers had such a "scream" building and testing their coasters. Each team earned points for building specific components and completing challenges.
