About this Grantee

Dr. Bell and Ms. Grebski relate technology to everyday life by introducing elementary students to simple machines. Collaborating with university engineering professors and parents, elementary teachers design activities and materials about simple machines that are used for everyday household tasks. After researching and analyzing simple machines, students use pulleys, gears, levers, and wheels to build their own machines.
