Ferric Wall O' Physics

In your attempts to unravel the secrets of the world, you often encounter obstacles in your way. Dr. Cy advises all budding investigators to create new roads of exploration and different ways of thinking. To prepare you for the challenge, he created a new type of obstacle course the Ferric Wall O' Physics!

The seven foot magnetic wall gracing the back of Dr. Cy’s Mobile Museum provides a creative canvas of magnetic madness.  A variety of balls, discs and marbles maneuver through a crazy racetrack of twists, drops, levers and turns.  Dr. Cy has added a challenge with teeth.  Can you use his maniacal magnetic gears to move the marbles from one place to another?
