Build your own working skate park model made of real wood! The Skate Park features lots of fun physics action, including a stair descent, rail slide and a jump so once you build your skate park, you can run marbles through it! 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 projectile motion and centripetal force while making an awesome kinetic sculpture!
The Skate Park takes approximately three to five hours to build, and measures 8″ when finished. It also connects with the Dragon Coaster (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!
