Is the marble maze science, technology, or math?


The marble maze activity is a lesson in spatial awareness and planning (math skills), in addition to observing the laws of motion in action (physics). Straws must be measured to determine the correct length and width for constructing the run, an additional math skill. Aside from combining physics and math skills, the marble maze teaches children how to solve problems creatively and engage critical thinking skills.
