How does a seesaw work? What makes wheels on a bike go around? How can you lift heavy objects? Playing with gears, wheels, levers and inclined planes, students learn the ways simple machinery makes our lives easier. Students take home spoon catapults and may create a piece of art for their classroom using gears.
This program takes place in the Discovery Lab in the Science Playground Exhibit Hall. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.
