Winners of the Marble Challenge

The Marble Run Challenge

It took us a long time to come to our decision! First and most importantly, the models had to keep the marble moving for at least 3 seconds (Key Stage 1) or at least 5 seconds (Key Stage 2).

Those models which did were then judged against the following three criteria :

  1. Was the marble run sturdy and well-made? Did it work every time?
  2. Was the marble run inventive and creative? We were especially impressed with models that had more than one mechanism.
  3. Did the model include a scientific explanation? This was particular important for Upper Key Stage 2 entries.
