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.
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.
Here is a list of suggested materials:
- a marble
- cardboard box
- paper towel rolls
- toilet paper rolls
- paper plates
- tape (duct tape, packing tape, masking tape)
- glue gun and hot glue
- popsicle sticks
