Annual Pumpkin Transporting Vehicle Convention

On Friday, November 11, Mr. Caldwell and Mrs. Poore's classes hosted the Pumpkin Transporting Vehicle Convention. The students used at least 4 simple machines to make one complex machine to safely transport a pumpkin a distance of 12 feet. Some simple machines used were: screws, inclined plane, wedges, pulleys, wheel and axle, gears, and levers. Parents and other classes came to view the event!
