Fourth-graders at Bayview received a special visit from representatives of the Cradle of the Aviation Museum as a supplement to their classroom lessons about simple machines.

Working in groups, students participated in several interactive activities, such as formulating hypotheses about items in a concealed bag and using their hands to investigate the mechanisms used in simple machines. Students learned about pulleys, inclines, wedges, levers, screws, gears, wheels and axles as they engaged in the fun and educational activities.
