Design Technology at the BFIS Makerspace

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

In Design Tech we have been exploring potential and kinetic energy by doing a Marble Run. Students were challenged to design and construct a marble roller coaster course that lasts exactly 20 seconds, no more no less, and must be made from cardboard and recycled materials.  There is so much to learn from making and building marble runs and students LOVE them!

Marvel runs have so much to teach students: it is packed with engineering, problem solving, creativity and teamwork.
