Description

A simple machine is the simplest mechanism that can provide mechanical advantage. The six classical examples that we will explore are: levers, a wheel and axle, an inclined plane, a wedge, screws, and pulleys.

Simple machines are considered to be the "building blocks" of more complicated machines.

In this workshop, on Saturday, December 15, at 2:00 p.m.,  we will build and use simple machines for some amazing and fun results.

Workshop fee is $7 per child and an accompanying adult in addition to regular museum admission.

The Physics Workshops are for ages 7 to 11.  Registration is available online or on the day of the workshop at the Busy Bee Learning Store.
