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! Building requires only household white glue…no special tools! It’s a unique and playful learning experience for beginner and experienced Makers alike!
- 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; for ages 9 and up.
- Made in the USA.
