More Sustainable Shots from Studio 106

Thanks to Helen for the shots of her first grade students and parent volunteers making marble mazes using:
o objects from the studio's collection of  "junque"
o and the laws of physics.

A marble maze is designed to make a marble take the slowest trip from start to finish.

Students repurpose clementine boxes, paper towel rolls, marker tops and so on to form their obstacles.

Students use gluedots to temporarily fasten pieces and adults use hot glue to  make the mazes permanent.

One engineer making sure the angle is not too steep otherwise the marble will go too  quickly.
These engineers are designing and testing and refining.
