B is for Band

My students are featured on the band OK Go’s Facebook page for their simple machine drawings based on the music video “This Too Shall Pass” (http://vimeo.com/10977948). As a Do Now activity in spring 2011, they were instructed to watch the video, choose a favorite simple machine, and explain how the machine changed the direction of the force in question. We talked about how inclined planes allow objects to move not only across but up and down and how wheels and axles multiply force by making the object move faster. Kudos to Henry, Dayanara, and Estrella for having their great scientific artwork posted!  Their drawings are here: www.tinyurl.com/okgorocketeers.
