This week, the Grade 2 classes had the opportunity to participate in hands-on workshops presented by Scientists In Schools. Our students made excellent predictions and tested the ways that simple machines make work easier. Levers, pulleys, inclined planes, wedges, wheels and axles can really lighten the load! Can you believe that Grade 2s can even squash soda cans? Well, it’s easy with the help of simple machines! A big thank you to all of the parents and grandparents who volunteered to make the workshop possible.
