Become an engineer and learn how to design and build your own marble rollercoaster! After a series of marble races, each participant will get to construct their own themed ride.
What will you learn on this course?
In this fun on-day workshop children will become junior engineers and learn how to design and build their own marble rollercoaster. This construction challenge will test the children to see how long they can make the track and how many thrills and spills they can build along the way, while making sure the marbles can still tumble down it.
