Marble Run Challenge - Design and Technology

Can you make your own marble run? Draw your design first and then use any materials you are allowed to use (check with your grown up first!). Take a picture and share it on the class blog.

Here are a couple of websites to help you plan your own marble run. Can you make it taller than you or can it go from one room to another? See if you can use objects you already have like cardboard tubes and cereal boxes.
