May the forces be with you

Class discussion about how much force is applied to make the roller axle turn and how much friction is needed to turn the wheel against the mechanism. What happens if there is too much?

Bikes are set up facing each other and the children can use what they have just learned to race to blend up their smoothie, our smoothie experts will time the children with their stop watches and judge who’s smoothie is the most blended. The child with the most blended smoothie gets their name on our magnetic leader board.
