ForceCourse Mini Pulley System
Explore the power of a pulley with a system that conveniently fits on a desk or table!
Build and experiment with 3 types of pulleys to discover how they are different during force and motion activities. The smaller size of the pulley machine system allows students to set it on a table, desktop, or floor. They will use the set to construct fixed, movable, and compound pulleys and assess how much force is needed to pull each. Through the process, they learn which pulley system requires the most force, which requires the least force, how adding additional pulleys affects the load, and more!
