MOVING UP IN THE WORLD


Mr. Clemmons’ science students have been learning about simple and compound machines and the mechanical advantages that they provide.  Students used a cable winch, or “Come Along”, to make easy work out of moving a 240 pound bookcase.  Several students also took turns using a double pulley (block and tackle).  With a mechanical advantage of 4, students were able to lift Mr. Clemmons to new heights!  During this lesson, Chris Bruschi and Sean Atwood both were able to lift and suspend Mr. Clemmons in the air.  Finally, Mr. Clemmons goes up, up and away thanks to the tag team of Trisha Melton and Aniya Rodriguez.  To view more pictures click here.
