Just stick it to the wall and let your imagination soar! The Wall Coaster uses the basic laws of physics and gravity to enable hours of fun and imaginative play.

Description

The Wall Coaster is NOT your ordinary marble run!

Just stick it to the wall and let your imagination soar and your marble drop! The Wall Coaster uses the basic laws of physics and gravity to enable hours of fun and imaginative play. The Wall Coaster comes standard with over 16 feet of track and tubes and 8 marbles! Plus, it is super easy to use. Recommended for ages five to adult.

Simply take out the track and tubes from the package and affix two small pieces of coaster tack (similar to standard reusable poster putty) to the back of the desired pieces and press onto the wall. By trial and error you will learn which configurations work and which don't - this is part of the fun! So many variations, you can almost lose your marbles!

Caution - contains small balls - not suitable for Children under 3.

What makes the Wall Coaster different: All other regular marble runs are built from the ground up like a building and only include a few feet of track. The Wall Coaster is different! It is not about the number of pieces but the length of track. With the Wall Coaster you get OVER 16 FEET in one kit! Colors may vary.

PLUS....
Because of the unique design, you can create exciting side-by-side marble races using the same parts!

Each kit comes with the following parts:
Five 4" coaster tracks
Fifteen 10" coaster tracks
Four 6" coaster tubes
Four coaster retention bands
Four specially designed lightweight crystal marbles
One package of reusable non-marking coaster tack
Four BONUS Glow in the Dark marbles

Stunt Kit Includes: Extra track (7 long pieces, 3 medium pieces, and 10 short pieces), 2 pieces of tubing, 4 marbles, coaster tack, and several new shapes to make great new wall coasters!

Son is having a lot of fun with this. Putty isn't always sticky enough, so plan on using additional tape, pins, etc. Still very good because he can leave/tinker with his creation up as long as he wants (v. his homemade floor-model that needed moving several times/day.)

I bought all the options for this pack to give my almost 13 year old lots of variations. It has been a big hit with his friends too. I love it is not permament on the wall. My son uses the hall & stairway area for hours of creative play. Even the cat watches the marbles drop & run!

I bought this for my class and then it was such a hit I bought a bunch for my kids at home. Endless creativity and never ending track designs make this product fun but really educational. We are building one down the entire wall of my class! Just remember to test it n the wall first and push hard on the tack and it will stay on the wall for months. We had some kids that didn't push hard and it fell off, then we told them to push hard and NO PROBLEM!

This looks like a good tool for teaching kinetic and potential energy. However, it could use a loop-loop and a spiral fall.

I teach HS and let kids put it on the wall of my room. It has been remodeled 100's of times! it is great for kids who have finished work first, they have enjoyed "playing", I have enjoyed watching them problem solve and work cooperatively.

NGSS

This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.

Elementary Middle School High School

Due to the small size of the marbles, The Wall Coaster is recommended for ages 5 and over.

K-PS2-1

Students can use the Wall Coaster to plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

3-PS2-2

Students can use the Wall Coaster to make observations and/or measurements of an object's motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

MS-PS2-1

Students can use the Wall Coaster in an investigation to apply Newton's Third Law to design a solution to a problem involving the motion of tow colliding objects.

MS-PS2-2

Students can use the Wall Coaster to plan an investigation to provide evidence that the change in an object's motion depends on the sum of the forces on the object and the mass of the object.

MS-PS2-4

Students can use the Wall Coaster in an investigation to construct and present arguments using evidence to support the claim that gravitational interactions are attractive depends on the masses of interacting objects.

HS-PS2-1

Students can use the Wall Coaster in an investigation to apply Newton's Second Law. Students can analyze data to support the claim that Newton's Second Law of Motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object.

HS-PS2-2

Students can use the Wall Coaster in an investigation and use mathematical representations to support the claim that the total momentum of a system of objects is conserved when there is no net force on the system.

HS-PS2-3

Students can use the Wall Coaster in an investigation and apply scientific and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision.
