Standards Alignment
Next Generation Science Standards

Transport your students to a magnificent amusement park that arises from a special girl’s wildly vivid imagination — then inspire them to dream, create, and build a park of their own with this NGSS-aligned STEM teaching kit based on the Paramount Pictures film Wonder Park. Students explore science concepts, practice STEM skills, and collaborate with as they design and test a roller coaster, a catapult, and a special attraction all their own. Made possible by Paramount Pictures.

Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence of the effects of balanced and unbalanced forces on the motion of an object.

Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
Use evidence to construct an explanation relating the speed of an object to the energy of that object.
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
Plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object’s motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.
Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.

Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions.
