Take a trip back in time to explore a world without technology. How different was life without the simple machines we take for granted like the wheel-and-axel and the screw? In Inventor’s Lab I: Simple Machines, kids learn the history and mechanics of the six simple machines (inclined plane, wedge, lever, wheel-and-axle, screw, pulley). Through tinkering and material exploration, kids will learn the creative and real-life application of the simple machines, opening up endless opportunities for inventive thinking and building. Past classes have constructed bike generators, paper airplane ballistas, mini vending machines and arcade games among many other creative projects.
Audience: Grades 4+
Equipment: Tape, Scissors, Recyclables (Cardboard, plastic containers, plastic bottles, paper rolls, string…. anything clean you can find in the recycle bin!) Not necessary, but optional: hot glue gun and glue sticks, popsicle sticks, chopsticks.
