Build a working Seesaw and a movable pulley – Simple Machines | Science projects
Make different simple machines
– Pulley (movable and non-movable) to understand how 4 nuts can be lifted with just 2 nuts.
– Gears of different sizes to understand how one turn of big gear can result in several turns of small gear.
Application of simple machines in every day life
It All Starts Simple
The simplest of sciences contribute to the greatest of achievements: as we will prove with our elegant DIY-series’ simple machines project.
With this project, your child will build an elementary understanding of how simple machines such as the lever and pulley. This project provides practical firsthand knowledge by implementing critical basics that build the foundation for a stronger, more equipped scientific knowledge, along with other noteworthy skills such as innovativeness, creativity, collaboration and a sharper focus.
This kit consists of the apparatus to build a lever, movable and immovable pulley, wheel and axle, wedge, and an inclined plane. Each project teaches the learner how simple machines can reduce effort in different scenarios. Further, this project helps a child learn the classification of levers based on location of the Load, effort as well as fulcrum. This project is extremely crucial to not only teach a child of the concept and ability of these simple machines, but also exemplifies how these machines can be applied in everyday life!
The Charm of Simple Machines
Elegant simplicity is better than complicated beauty – a phrase that without doubt arose from the world of physics. Simple Machines elucidate this fact with their widely ranging applicability in industries and even everyday layman tools, and thus they also are important and inseparable from the full-circle understanding of Engineering. While simple machines may work together to create complicated and advanced machines, they are just as important to a school’s curriculum as they are to a higher level of education.
With the help of Butterfly Fields DIY series, we present to you a myriad of simple machines that your child can learn to create, understand and apply!
