Speed of Marbles

The experiment today, was to design a way to slow a marble down as it rolled down a table. The pupils weren’t allowed to touch the marble once they had let it go. They tried different ways to slow the marbles down including friction, increasing the distance and losing energy with impacts on surfaces and speed bumps.

  1. The slowest time was 35 seconds. This was so fun. We had to make an obstacle course to slow our marble down.

  2. I enjoyed seeing the speed that the marbals went at and also I enjoyed making all of the things to make it go slower it was very fun .

  3. We made a track for the marble to go down a slope. We had to make it go down in the longest time possible ⚪️
