Levels: Grades 6-12
Description: Users navigate a series of scientific experiments with the goal of getting a ball from a launching point to a goal. The ball is static and relies on a combination of gravity and external forces for propulsion. Users much create circuits, activate machines and otherwise manipulate the ball so that it reaches its goal. There are also obstacles to overcome. After the various tools are placed by the user, a test can be performed to see if the configuration works. If it fails, the tools must be rearranged and tested again.
