Mrs. Wagner's Simple Machines


As a learning project, Mrs. Wagner's students were instructed to develop simple machines to move a Ping-Pong ball 1 meter. Their machine must be made from parts that were not meant to be a part of a machine. Remember machines do not have to have a motor. A machine is something that makes work easier. A simple machine uses only one movement. Examples of simple machines: inclined plane, wedge, screw, lever, wheel and axle, and pulley.
