To celebrate learning about simple machines, third grade students at Park View Elementary participated in a Simple Machines Fair. Each student made their own simple machine to display at the fair to show off their knowledge to the rest of the school, as well as parents. The student's  creativity and ability to apply what they learned was very impressive. The machines were all different shapes and sizes, but they all were able to scientifically do work using one, or a combination or, the six simple machines. Some of the projects included catapults, dog feeders, and homemade traps. It was a great event to take part in.
