Build your own working roller coaster model made of real wood! The Mini Coaster is full of dips and turns with some engineering and physics thrown in” so once you build your coaster, you can run marbles through it! The assembly instructions feature a graphic novel with the Tinkineer cast of characters” Kelvin, Joule, Newt and friends “to communicate meaningful STEM concepts in an engaging format. It’s a fun way to learn about roller coaster design and conservation of energy while making an awesome kinetic sculpture!
The Mini Coaster takes approximately one to two hours to build, and measures 6” when finished.
Tinkineer’s Marbleocity introduces children to engineering principles and physics concepts with dynamic hands-on STEM model kits made of precision-cut wood in the USA. Each kit includes easy-to-follow assembly instructions in a graphic novel that features the Tinkineer characters. The comic introduces a physics concept or engineering mechanism that is the focal point of the model, all in a fun and engaging way! The result is an awesome kinetic sculpture and some new physics and engineering insight!
