You will have your class get into teams of two or three to build a marble roll track system. The challenge is to see if you can build a track system where the marble travels from start to finish in exactly 15 seconds. This challenge is a modification of the Dyson Marble Challenge.

Gravity creates potential energy and your team will use that to move your marble in the marble roll challenge. Your team will research numerous designs on the internet and make a few prototypes out of cardboard, tape and paper. The goal is to have the marble travel for exactly 15 seconds. No more, no less. Exactly 15 seconds.
