Session A: The Simple Pleasures of Simple Machines

Catapults, race cars, seesaws, and more!  Join us for 4 weeks of hands-on inquiry into levers, pulleys, wheels, inclined planes, wedges, and screws.  Children will tinker with a range of enticing materials as they discover the power of simple machines.
