Investigating Levers

Pupils will partake in a scientific experiment involving levers and weights. Then using the knowledge gained they will then discover a moving steam engine (moved by hand) and watch a working water wheel. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Pupils will understand that mechanisms, including levers, pulleys, and gears allow a small force to have a great effect.
  • Pupils will make their own decisions regarding what measurements and observations to make.
  • Pupils will begin to look for causal relationships and identify evidence that supports or refutes their ideas.
