This week we are looking at two topics: Simple Machines, and Catapults.
Understanding Simple Machines is imperative with the next several challenges using simple machines.
We will be looking at Bill Nye's Episode on Simple Machines. You will also be looking at a website that is all about Simple Machines. (If the link below doesn't work click here.)
