Simple machines in IEP

Students in Science class A and B have been hard at work investigating simple machines. 
 
Simple machines make work easier but interestingly, they have only a few or no moving parts. Students explored how simple machines like pulleys, levers, wedges, inclined planes and screws work by changing the direction of a force or the amount of force needed to do something. They even created their own simple machines at home!
 
This is a fun and easy experiment that families can do at home using regular household items. For more information, take a look at the following resources.
