Pulleys and Gears
Students in our Pulleys and Gears academic workshop will never look at their ten speeds quite the same once they learn the relationship of gears, torque and speed.
We break out the LEGO for two hands-on activities focused on gears and pulleys. First students use LEGO bikes to investigate the effects of changing gear ratios. Then they work together to build inchworm bugs and explore how pulleys and gears are used in this complex machine of levers, pulleys, gears, and wedges. If there's time they might even get a chance to race their bugs and see which design is the fastest!
