What have we learned so far? Pyramid Building Simple Machines Rock Quarry Angles Wedges Cutting Stone You have stone, now

what? Transportation! Can you imagine how ancient engineers might have transported stone blocks from rock quarry to building site? Some stones were huge! The Great Pyramid in Egypt has 2.5 million stone blocks

Some pyramid blocks weigh as much as 9,000 kilograms (~10 tons) That means one stone could weigh as much as two elephants! Leve A simple machine thatr provides a mechanical

advantage A bar pivoted on a fixed point (fulcrum) to which force is applied to do work Makes lifting weight easier by using a fulcrum to redirect force over a longer distance Examples: see-saw, dump truck, broom, crane arm, hammer claw, crowbar, fishing pole, bottle opener Wheel and axle A simple machine that

provides a mechanical advantage Consists of a wheel and an axle Makes it easy to move things by rolling them, and reducing friction Examples: car, bicycle, office chair, wheel barrow, shopping cart, hand truck, roller skates Why use a wheel and

axle, or a lever? Mechanical Advantage! The trade off between longer time or distances traveled, for an easier way to do work An advantage that allows for greater work at the expense of less energy expended Makes life easier!

Everyday examples Can you think of any items at home or school that use a wheel and axle, or a lever? Historians and archaeologists believe that in ancient times Blocks of stone were rolled on

wooden logs and pulled with rope Once on site, stone blocks were hoisted up using multiple levers How would you design it? Today, youre going to build your own transportation system for moving rocks from a quarry to a building site What things will you consider in the design of your cart?

Engineering Design Process Understand the need: Gather information and research what others have done. What is the problem? What do I want to do? What are the project requirements? What are the limitations? Who is the customer? What is the goal? Brainstorm and design: Imagine and brainstorm ideas. Be creative. Investigate existing technologies and methods to use. Explore, compare and analyze many possible solutions. Select the

most promising idea. Plan: Draw a diagram of your idea. How will it work? What materials and tools are needed? How will you test it to make sure it works? Create: Assign team tasks. Build a prototype. Does it work? Talk about what works, what doesn't and what could work better. Improve: Talk about how you could improve your end product. Make revisions. Draw new designs. Make your product the best it can be.
