Parkdale: Marble Momentum Mazes

Parkdale Budding Scientists built their own marble momentum mazes after learning how things gain speed as they travel down a hill.


Every child received some paper, straws and cord. Without concrete instructions, students let their creative process flow. Each of the mazes were unique and imaginative. After drawing, cutting, gluing, and taping, bumpers, stairs, and tunnels were created.


Everyone got to test their creations with a marble for functionality and speed. Even though each student received the same supplies, they each took the project in their own personalized direction, while giving one another compliments along the way.
