Marbleocity: Dragon Coaster
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 Dragon Coaster takes approximately three to five hours to build, and measures 8” when finished. It also connects with the Skate Park (sold separately), so you can expand your marble empire and shuttle marbles back and forth! 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!
