Man and Machine

Our class has been discussing the relationship between man and machine. Starting with the blur between man and machine that we see today, then taking a step back to find the need for the machines in the first place. From the Stone Age through the Roman Empire to today, the contribution to humankind has been impressive.  Alongside our story, we have been having fun with experiments in the classroom to test simple machines and have been discussing basic physics concepts.
