Introducing young students to key simple machines concepts and the real world applications. Students will work in pairs to explore and investigate simple machines such as gears, wheels, axles, levers, pulleys and concepts such as energy, balance, buoyancy, etc. As students build and work through the activities they will be prompted to observe and investigate simple machines, follow design instructions, and exercise skills such as predicting, reflecting and critical thinking.
