Marble Run Challenge

In Design Technology Year 6 have been set the challenge of designing and creating a marble run, so that the marble takes one minute to run down. To start with the children watched the following STEM video by James Dyson Engineering (see the link) to give them inspiration and to set the challenge.

It has been amazing to see so far what you can make a marble run out of, lots of different types of recycled materials (I bet the wheelie bins are empty for once!).

Plus even a table tennis table has been used so watch out for that. Here are some of the creations so far :

In School the Year 6 children are collaborating together to change the Creation Studio into a massive marble run. See photos for work in progress.

It is not as easy as it looks as you need to slow down the marble as much as possible.

If you are a bit bored during the lockdown why don’t you raid your wheelie bin and join the challenge. We would love to see your creations, so post them back on your child’s stream in Google Classroom.
