"What did you do during quarantine?" is the adult's version of "What did you do on your summer vacation?" Well, I spent my quarantine building chain reactions and marble runs with my family. We used Gravitrax as a simple marble run set and as a racetrack, which sparked conversations about gravity, momentum, friction, potential energy and more. There are endless possibilities, and the pieces are really easy for my 10yo to use. But our favorite part is how easily Gravitrax transitions to building bigger chain reactions. We could make enormous Gravitrax towers for a marble to speed down and knock over a cereal box, which dumped cereal into our bowls for breakfast. Or knock over a wood block that launches an action figure into the air. Or press a lever that released a bigger ball for our dog to chase. All in all, Gravitrax kept us busy and curious." -Katie Kalata Rusch, Exhibits Developer & Project Coordinator

With over 100 pieces and 18 different construction elements, the GraviTrax Starter Set offers everything you need to begin building your own action-packed track systems. Discover how the laws of physics affect the journey your marble takes with curves, junctions, freefalls and even a cannon. Experiment using different heights and angles to control the speed of the marble to get it to the finish.
