The Mesmerizing Mechanics and Motion Pavilion

We are amazed by the simplest applications of everyday mechanics and motion. Leonardo da Vinci once absorbed the ideas behind these simple mechanics and motions, to apply and create exemplary masterpieces. These masterpieces can only fully be understood once the scientific concepts behind simple mechanics are grasped by students.

The mechanics and motion pavilion brings the subject to life, by creating stories and illustrating basic physical phenomenon linked to everyday life. Students are taught basic concepts, such as the principle on which a pair of scissors is created. The mechanics and motion pavilion assists students in remembering these scientific ideas for life, while applying them in daily life.

Experiences Include

Levers– Leveraging the concept of simple machines
Joints and Links– Unlinking the mystery between different kinds of connectors
Friction– How surfaces and objects interact when brought closer to each other
Forces of motion– Unravelling the forces found around us.
Motion – Speeding up the study of how we move from A to B.
