Things Fall Down

Building with Blocks and Marbles
 
Kids: In this class, we make stuff with marbles and building blocks, then it falls down in weird ways. We’ll make mazes, we’ll play store, we’ll solve stories where the princess has to rescue the prince, we’ll make strange falling domino puzzles, we’ll make catapults.
Parents:  We use 3200 classic wooden building block, the kind that Frank Lloyd Wright and Robert Oppenheimer played with, that helped make them so smart; and Cuboro, an ingenious Swiss-made marble run system that fascinates children and gets them thinking logically and spatially. It is a mandatory part of the curricula of some school districts in Europe — it’s that good.
