3D model description

The Archimedes screw is a device believed to be invented by Archimedes, one of the world's greatest scientists, in the 3rd century B.C. It was most often used to transport water from lower ground to higher ground for purposes of irrigation, flood prevention, and more. Interestingly, it is still used today in many different applications.

In this lesson, students are tasked with moving different materials up an incline using an Archimedes screw. This project is intended for high school engineering or physics students, though can be scaled back to use in lower grades as well.
