Marble Machine

The marble run pieces are finished and I hope to get them tested with the students this week, but for now here is a very big and noisy marble machine, would drive the teachers and neighbors mad if we had one of these.

Marble Run

The main parts of the marble run have been put up along the fence, much to the surprise of the students and parents who were wondering what was going on. How it all works will still be a bit of mystery until the marble run parts are finished and the Art Group test out the marble run to make sure it all works and how we mange its use by students and stop the staff spending all their time playing on it.
I am going to get the Art Group to think of some ideas for developing the marble run and we might think about having a marble run construction day later in the year, we will keep you posted on ideas they come up with.
So thanks to the Art Group both this years and last years students for all the ideas and Wellington Makerspace for the fabrication and installation of the marble run.
