Simple Machines Smartboard Game

Simple MachinesThis very cute game tells the story of Twitch, who had been ordered to collect several items so that his friend could finish building his robot creation.  However, collecting the items will not be easy, as Twitch is faced with several challenges, each requiring a certain type of simple machine.  The student’s task is to help our little red friend by choosing the best simple machine that would exert as minimum effort as possible.

Each completed stage provides an explanation of the simple machine used.  At the end of the game, the player’s scorecard is shown, providing how much force Twitch had used for each stage and throughout the game. Try to find out which student (or group of students) will get the lowest spent force!
