Exhibit Code: GLE-E080
Zone: Engineering Park
Location: James E. Gleason Hall (GLE/009) - Erdle Commons
Time: All Day
Appropriate for all ages? Yes

Six simple machines: the lever, inclined plane, wedge, pulley, wheel, and screw. But why are they "simple" and how do they make life easier? Test how they affect your ability to lift weights, separate seemingly inseparable blocks, and understand how a screw works better than a nail. Come see for yourself why these simple machines are extraordinary!
