As featured on WSAZ’s First Look at Four, RCBI’s Makerspace/STEM Coordinator, Kara Mullins, and Director of the Center of Innovation, Deacon Stone, demonstrate a STEM exercise that students can complete at home with household materials.
This is a project that can be done with minimal household supplies. All you need is a marble, paper, tape, scissors, and a ruler.
It can be adjusted for any age level and modified depending on skill level.
- Beginners start with basic household supplies
- Emerging makers can play with different materials to construct the track. For example, the supports could be 3D printed using a stand-alone machine or 3D printing pens.
- Advanced makers could utilize CNC machinery to make precise cuts to create custom parts. If they want to take it a step further and add lights, sensors, or other electrical components then that would certainly be possible and is encouraged!
