Marble Tracks Kit
Kit Number: 7677
Let your students discover principles of motion with this exploratory kit. Its open-ended design makes it perfect for both guided lessons as well as student-directed stations. Designed to fit a standard marble, simply insert the marble into the track, apply a force and watch the change in motion. Have students anticipate the behavior of the marble once it leaves the track and set up games and goals for students to accomplish. This kit also makes a great backdrop to investigate pipe and tunnel studies, investigating the benefits and disadvantages of different track designs. Sturdy, interconnecting pieces snap together and break apart easily, allowing for quick adjustments.
