In this inquiry activity, students will explore and understand what machines are and how they work. Students will produce culminating pieces of work summarizing and extending their knowledge of machines from the Medieval/Renaissance time periods. They will investigate mechanical advantage in a variety of mechanisms and simple machines as related to Medieval/Renaissance times. Students will ask questions about the machines and develop and implement experiments to provide solutions to their queries.
