Clever Lever

We have been experimenting with levers. Our first challenge was to get the ping pong ball into the cup using a spoon and a fulcrum of our choice. Our next challenge was to see who could get their ping pong ball the highest. We discovered that 

  • Levers are able to help us lift heavy objects. 
  • Levers consist of a stick and a fulcrum. 
  • The fulcrum is the point on which the lever moves. 
  • By changing the position of the fulcrum you will either gain or lose power - the closer the fulcrum is to the object the easier it is to lift
