Saturday 18th July until Monday 7th September 2015

Early this year The MAD Museum installed MAD Marbles which is essentially a giant interactive wall for visitors to build their own rolling ball creations on. Using inspiration from around the museum, the wall encourages creative thinking and systematic design but it is a lot of fun! The aim of the game is to use the various track parts to make the marble travel from the top of the wall to the bottom without whizzing off.

This Summer The MAD Museum invites you to invent a new weird and wonderful track part for MAD Marbles.

What do you want on the wall?

Loops and hoops, elevators, slopes, staircases, tubes, spiral tracking, chimes and jumps – the possibilities are endless.
Release your inner inventor! This design competition is open to all age groups, draw your craziest creation and post it to The MAD Museum.

What could you win?

The winner will receive a goodie bag full of MAD treats and their winning track part will be made into a real piece and go on the museum’s MAD Marbles wall. Not only that but the winner’s name will also be printed on the new track piece.
Everyone that uses the triumphant track piece will know it’s yours!

The MAD Museum exhibits mind-blowing artwork from some of the world’s most pioneering inventors, join the illustrious list this Summer!
