The Simple Machines Tour
Students will learn about levers, pulleys, gears,
and the wheel and axle by exploring "Easy Does It: How Machines Make Life Easier,"
an interactive exhibit that includes examples of simple machines from home and
our nineteenth-century industrial site. Along with trying out things like a
car transmission and a sluice gate, students will explore the powder yards
to find more simple machines and to see machinery demonstrations.
This tour is designed to complement science standards on energy.
