Levers, pulleys, gears, and cams are all examples of simple machines that can be used to make work easier. In this engaging and very hands-on workshop students will investigate different types of simple machine. Activities include lifting a teacher with one finger, launching a helicopter, and getting the attention of their servant! The workshop culminates in a challenge task where teams construct and use a model catapult.
