CCA: Principles of Engineering "Simple Machine Energy Transfer"Top of Page

Canyon Crest Academy's Principles of Engineering participated in a class-wide project integration task where students investigated a unit on "Simple Machines." 

Each team was asked to create a SMET (Simple Machine Energy Transfer) unit which had to incorporate several simple machines (levers, pulleys, gears, ramps, etc), and transfer a marble from the input to the output then pass the marble to another team in the class. 

This group of students were able to get the marble to traverse all the machines with no human interaction several times- a feat never done before in this program!
