POPCS SmartLab Rotation 1  

Island 1

 K'nex

The challenge given is to build an inclined plane machine to show how inclined planes make work easier. When you think of an inclined plane, you might think of a ramp, but even a jar has a type of inclined plane in its design. In order to understand this better, students will work together to either create and/or build inclined planes so that they may come to the understanding of what an inclined plane really is.
