Let the Good Times Roll: Marble Maze

1 02 2011

Ready, Set Roll!, the Museum’s new featured exhibit just opened. Come learn about friction, gravity and energy. You can have fun learning about how objects roll on your own… make this awesome marble maze at home!

Create a marble maze on the inside of a shoebox lid, so the sides will keep the marble from rolling onto the floor. Mark one corner the start and label a hole in the opposite corner finish. In between the start and the finish cut more holes that you want to avoid. Also, use Popsicle sticks, bottle caps, and other recycled goods to create obstacles.

Pick up your maze and shift it to guide the marble to the end. What did you use to make your maze? Leave a comment and let us know.
