ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
With the Lever Lift, you’re strong enough to lift your friends in a giant globe! Race down one of two exhilarating ziplines In Just Plane Zippy, but don’t forget to look up at the simple machine right above you. At Acceleration Plane, place weighted wheels at the top of each ramp and let go to see how gravity works against friction. Go for a spin on The Wheel Deal and learn firsthand how a wheel and axle makes work easier. Lift a bowling ball with ease with Pulley Power — a feat made possible by a simple machine. In Wedge It, use one kind of wedge (your hands and feet) to scamper up a wedge-shaped climbing wall. Slide down the ridges — or threads — of a screw in the Screw Slider. Ready for an adventure? Scale the three-story-tall Luckey Climber to get a birds-eye view of the simple machines in the exhibit.
