STEM = Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics


We are learning about simple machines. A simple machine is a device that changes the direction or the size of a force. They are incredibly useful and form the basis for many more complex pieces of engineering.


Simple machines include inclined planes, wedges, screws, pulleys, levers and the wheel and axle. 


We are also looking at other basic machines, including linkages, gears, cams and cranks.
