Take a trip back in time to explore a world without technology. How different was life without the simple machines we take for granted like the wheel-and-axle and the screw? In Inventor’s Lab, kids learn the history and mechanics of the six simple machines (inclined plane, wedge, lever, wheel-and-axle, screw, pulley). Through tinkering and material exploration, kids will learn the creative and real-life application of the simple machines, opening up endless opportunities for inventive thinking and building. We will be inspired by the natural world around us, incorporating nature and the resources that surround us into our creations, solutions, and process.
