Introduce students to the dynamic realm of engineering design.

Description

Get those marbles and minds moving with this STEM Design Challenge! The Marble Down exercise introduces students to the thrilling realm of engineering design. Students engage in the complete design process, including asking questions, defining problems, planning, creating, testing, evaluating, and more! Initially, students explore variables to understand their impact on the marble's speed along a rubber band track. Observe a boost in student engagement as they implement concepts from the initial activity to construct a marble maze with the longest run time.

Ensure each group has a timer or stopwatch, available separately.
