Embedded within engineering is the identification of a problem and a creative approach to solving it. As they try out solutions, revise their ideas and test them again, children will show engagement, initiative, persistence and inventiveness – often in collaboration with others. This Marble Run Collection includes open-ended resources such as ramps, pillars and balls which will secure a high level of engagement and ensure that your children have the opportunity to develop their engineering skills and understanding of structure through design technology, maths and science.
Our Marble Run Collection includes the following:
- Set of Spirit Levels – Wooden spirit levels, 15cm long, calibrated and fully functional. This set of real spirit levels will give children a new way to help perfect their work.
- Set of Ramps – 2 x ramps 400mm x 100mm, 2 x ramps 500mm x 100mm and 2 ramps 600mm x 100mm. These wooden ramps come complete with grooves on either side to keep the wooden balls from falling off. Their high-quality material also ensures these will be long lasting.
- Set of Bowls – 1 x large beech wood bowl, 1 x medium beech wood bowl with pedestal. Children can use these bowls to position at the end of the marble run and see if they can get the balls to fall into the bowls.
- Set of Wooden Cuboids – 4 x medium wooden cuboids, 40mm x 40mm x 160mm and 4 x small wooden cuboids, 40mm x 40mm x 80mm. These cuboids can be used to build the foundation of the marble run.
- Set of Wooden Columns 4 x small columns 4cm x 8cm, and 4 x large columns 4cm 16cm. For use for either building the marble run or these can also be turned on their side to build a seesaw mechanism.
- Set of Wooden Balls – 6 x small wooden balls, 50cm and 10 x mini wooden balls, 25mm.
Extend the marble run building possibilities with our Medium Basic Block Set for bigger structures.
