Your challenge is to build towers out of toilet roll to move another toilet roll along it as fast as possible, to do this you will have to make sure the angle (gradient) is steep enough for gravity to move the toilet roll all the way along the towers and onto the landing zone.

We’ve adapted this activity to work for different age groups – 4-10s (primary), 11-16s (secondary) and 16-18s (sixth form) to be completed in the home environment with minimal equipment.
