2. Make a Marble Run

engineering activitiesEquipped with only cardboard boxes and struts, tape, scissors, and marbles, students will construct a marble run, similar to those shown in the videos that showcase the potential of projects made during The James Dyson Foundation’s Marble Run Engineering Challenge. The sky, or rather the classroom ceiling, is the limit for this project. Working together, students will examine principles in gravity, mass, height, friction, and angles and see them play out in real life.
