Making Life Simpler with Simple Machines: 2010
This grant gives 6th graders a program that provides real life experiences to see and interact with real life simple machines. They will have an opportunity to manipulate simple machines and learn from hands on discovery how machines such as pulleys and levers make work easier.
Mathematical calculations are also introduced into the program so students can collect and analyze data to confirm how work/effort is reduced. This grant includes the Simple Machine Outreach Program from the Morris Museum.
