Now students can craft their own Marble Run with drops, twists, and turns. Students will start with an exploration of gravity and then have a lesson on how to use building tools safely. For the remainder of the workshop participants will design and begin building the foundation of their marble run. This is a two part workshop and students will continue the learning and building process at the workshop on January 24, 2015. Let’s get rolling with part one of Marble Runs! Marble Runs: Part 2*: January 24, 2015 Recommended for children ages 8-12 years old. *Only participants who enrolled in Marble Runs: Part 1 can enroll in this workshop. Engineers must know how to build structures that will hold up against nature’s tests. Continuing the momentum from the previous workshop, participants will explore how various materials can help or hinder the strength of their marble run. Foundations, braces, and supports will be used to complete the building the building process. If time allows, fun features such as levers, elevators, or spinners can be added. Participants will take home and can continue to upgrade their marble runs. This is sure to be an exciting conclusion to your creative contraptions!
