Home School at the Museum: Simple Machines

April 16, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Levers, pulleys and wedges are simple machines that make our lives and sailor’s lives (and work) easier. This month, students will create mouse-trap powered cars to better explore simple machines, Newton’s three laws, acceleration and velocity. While this program is currently full, space are available on the wait list for each day.

Please note— the Navy Museum cannot accept same week reservations.
