Create a Marble Run!

Put your engineering hat on and create a marble run!!

Marble runs are a lot of fun, and the best part is, they can be easily created using recycled and household materials!


The objective is to create a track for a marble to travel from start to finish. Remember gravity forces the marble downwards, which means you'll need to create a track with an inclined plane.


Vocabulary

Engineer: An engineer is a person who designs and builds complex products, machines, systems, or structures.


Gravity: Gravity is the force by which a planet or other body draws objects toward its center.


Inclined Plane: To slope or slant.
