DT - Marble Run

Marvellous Marble Run! 

 

Can you create your very own 'marble run' using items in your home?

 

Anything will work; cereal boxes, kitchen roll tubes, bottles, books, chairs...even the stairs! It doesn't even need to be a marble; any ball will do. The question is, how far can you make the ball travel before it falls off the 'track' or stops? 

 

Design, create, build!

 

I simply cannot wait to see your efforts. My girls tried this at home - check out the video and photos below. If you'd like to send me a photo, or even a video of the 'marble run' in action, I would love to see it! 

 

Good luck! Mrs Palmer smiley  mpalmer1@educ.somerset.gov.uk
