GraviTrax With GraviTrax your child can design and build hi-tech marble runs while using gravity, magnetism, kinetic energy, momentum, velocity, and problem-solving to propel marbles to the finish. With this open-ended construction set your child will have access to two manuals. In the first, he will be asked to build a marble run precisely as pictured. In the second, he will be told the exact pieces and a few placements, but he will need to complete the design. Both booklets are color-coded, so your child can pick his preferred level of difficulty.
With over 100 pieces and 18 different construction elements, your child will learn how physics impact the track of his marble and how experimenting with height, curves, freefall, and even a magnetic cannon can be used to control the speed of the marble. Everything a STEM building set should be, GraviTrax combines physics, architecture, and engineering and will sharpen your child’s spatial reasoning, logical planning, and architectural design skills.
There are two manuals. In the first, marble runs are built precisely as pictured. In the second, complete the marble runs using assigned pieces in defined placements. With 33 models to build, assemble one marble run per week.

”We’ve just gone from toy to science lab kit….and my son doesn’t even know it. Ding, ding, ding! AND, when he takes the building guide and goes off to play on his own, you may just hear him rehearing the lessons concepts you discussed with the kit.”
