Timber Point Students Make Marble Mazes

Students in Donna Beal’s class at Timber Point designed and created paper tube marble runs after studying premade designs.

After using magnetic runs to create a workable track system, the students drew blueprints using paper tubes and duct tape. During the design process, the students tested out their runs and corrected any problems so that their marbles would roll smoothly through the mazes. Finally, the children painted their runs, reflected upon their work, and wrote out the steps they followed. Each child presented their project and told the audience what they liked about the entire creative process. 

“We are very proud of the students’ perseverance and hard work,” said Beal.
