Join us each week for a different building challenge! This week's challenge is Marble Maze. You are an elf mining precious gems (marbles) in the mountains. Create a run to get these gems from the mountain to the swamp below, then onto a boat. Use LEGOs, blocks or household materials to build the marble run. Time the marbles and experiment with changing the run to see if it gets them to the boat faster.  For extra fun, upload a picture of your creation to Instagram using the hashtags #STEMPoweredBuilding and #CADL, or add it to the Virtual Display Case on our Facebook pageRead More
