Science 8 Students Split Apples


For the past two weeks, the Science 8 class has been investigating how simple machines improve our lives tremendously. Friday, the students were asked to split an apple in half…with their bare hands. After the students recovered from the shock of this task; they got to work. Many different techniques were attempted but only one worked! Using the knowledge of how a wedge works, they formed their hands in a wedge shape until the apple finally split equally in half.
