Marble Run Madness: Design and Engineer

Loops! Jumps! Hair-pin bends! What’s the most exciting roller coaster you can imagine? Now come and build it. In this 5 day camp, apprentices join a team of like-minded engineers to dream up, design and construct a twisty downhill run. They’ll turn cardboard, paper, straws and other household materials into a roller coaster… for marbles!

Apprentices will learn every step of the design process as they research, prototype, test and assemble their marble run. By the end of the week they’ll have built a fascinating, gravity-defying structure, that combines creativity with their new engineering skills. Let’s get building!

Skills: Research, Construction, Math, Design, Analysis, Teamwork
