Product Details

Set those marbles and minds in motion with this STEM Design Challenge! The Marble Down activity familiarizes students with the exciting world of engineering design. Students practice the design process by asking questions, defining problems, planning, creating, testing, evaluating and more! First, students investigate variables to determine how each affects the marble’s speed along a rubber band track. Watch students’ engagement increase as they apply the concepts from the introductory activity to build a marble maze with the longest run time.

A timer or stopwatch is required for each group and available separately.
