Every week, EVPL will be posting a new STEAM challenge for you to complete from your home! The challenge will run from Monday until Friday. Your parents can help, or you can complete the challenge on your own. We would love to see your creations! Submissions will be posted the following Monday when a new challenge is presented.
Use whatever items you can find around the house to create a track for a marble. The track can travel down a wall, up and down furniture, or across the floor. It can be small enough to fit in a box or big enough to travel around the whole room.
You can use anything that a marble could roll through. Things like paper cups with the bottom cut out, toilet paper tubes, paper towel tubes, sheets of paper rolled into tubes or funnels, or pool noodles. Even your pet hamster’s plastic tunnels! If you are creating your marble run on a wall, painter’s tape makes it easy to reposition parts without damaging the surface.
Age group/grade level suggested
Younger ages can create simpler tracks while older kids can try more complex designs. Younger children may need some help assembling the track, but the design should be the child’s.
Send a picture of your ice cream to firstname.lastname@example.org to be featured next week!
