Students will jump back in time and take a job on Henry Ford's moving assembly line during this hour-long home school program. Participants will examine models of the six simple machines and look for correlating examples on the 1913 Model T automobile. A discussion of Ford's innovative use of the moving assembly line helps students explore how machines can help people do their work faster and better. The lesson culminates in a Lego challenge where students form teams, become workers on an assembly line and try to improve their efficiency as they build Lego cars.
The fee to participate is $8 per member child and $10 per non-member child. For more information and to register, click here.
