Simple Machines: Simply Amazing!

Simple machines are simply amazing!
 

Third grade students at Hilltop Country Day School presented a program on the six simple machines – the wedge, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane, screw, and pulley. In their makerspace class, students built large scale models of each machine to demonstrate the physical science principles behind each. In front of a crowd of parents and peers, the students shared how these simple machines gave man mechanical advantages throughout history and showed forms of these machines in everyday devices.
