As a part of our simple machine study, we explored levers.

Teams were given a block, ruler, and half a cardboard tube.  They needed to set up the three objects to simulate a lever, fulcrum and load.  Next, they labeled the three parts.  Finally, they came to the assumption that it is easier to lift a heavy load when the fulcrum is a bit closer to the load when compared to far away.

Way to go scientists!
