Once upon a time there was an itty-bitty pumpkin named Rox. Rox was intelligent, curious, and shy.
Rox was cut off his vine too early and put in the back of a truck to be delivered to a pumpkin patch. Rox was boarded into the truck bed and his heart began to pound frantically when he realized how much smaller he was than the other pumpkins.
The truck took Rox and the others to Pumpkin Acres, a pumpkin patch with 100 acres of pumpkins, corn mazes, games, and a petting zoo.
Rox was amazed by the massive area he was foreign to. His adventurous side got the best of him and off he went to explore and discover. But as Rox rolled along the bigger pumpkins who ruled the patch began to tease him.
“Why are you so tiny?”
“What’re you doing here? You aren’t like us.”
“They must’ve made a mistake, you don’t belong here.”
As they chanted, Rox tried to keep his emotions under control as he continued rolling to explore the hay ride and baseball field along the dirt path.
Little had Rox know that he was being followed by the “bully pumpkins,” Butch, Randy, and Bruce.
Everyone in the patch feared these pumpkins, they were the meanest and they ruled over Pumpkin Acres. Butch was the leader, he was heartless, rude, and demanding. Randy and Bruce have been followers of Butch for a long time, they weren’t as cold, but tried to be just like Butch.
“I’m as tall as this tractor wheel!” Randy remarked
Bruce smirked, “I’m wider than the wheel!”
“I am not only taller than this wheel, but wider too,”…

resistance. I searched around my house for things I could use as wheels. First I thought about using the tin lids off old spaghetti cans but the lids had little lips in them so that idea went into the trash. Then I went out in the garage because I knew that my mom had kept some old toys that me and my brother played with when we were little. BINGO! I found an old plastic tractor that I that I could tear the wheels and axles off But what could I put the rear axle in so it spun freely and then…
1. How do you adjust the pulling force of the mousetrap?
Adjusting the length of the snapper will change the pulling force—making something move as it goes in a certain direction. Making the snapper on the mousetrap longer will decrease the pulling force and a shorter snapper will increase it. …
1. What simple machines did you incorporate into your nifty lifting machine?
In the nifty lifting machine Kenny, Kaylee and Josh used three simple machines. The group used a pulley system as the first simple machine. The pulleys are what allowed lifting the 600 gram can up the five centimeters. The group also used a wheel and axle, which is the crank that was used to pull up the cans. The wheel is the handle that turns axle, which is the dowel rod the group used to tie the rope around. Then,…
The baby stroller is mainly composed of three materials:
Nylon (woven, as fabric)
Plastic (injection molded, for plastic parts)
Steel (tubing, for frame)
Fasteners are included in the assembly of different components of the strollers.
The stroller would have to be manufactured on an assembly line. The fabric weaving and seat making, the plastic molding and the frame can simultaneously be manufactured in their respective work areas.
Each hole should be 1 inch away from the end of the wood therefore, there should be four inches of wood between each hole. Make sure each hole is large enough for the axle to fit in without being able to rotate too much. Once all of the holes are drilled match the two…

2. Crank Arms
The crank arms presented here have never been evaluated experimentally. All discussions on performances are speculative only.
Four crank arms are presented here. They all have the following characteristics.
1. Each arm comprises two bars.
2. The first bar, identified as Bar A, has a cavity to hold the second bar.
3. The second bar, Bar B, is fully or partly inside the cavity in Bar A.
The crank arms differ from each other in the shapes of Bar A, and in whether Bar B has a pin. In…
a hook on the axle and supper glued that to the far left of the axle. I then took of the string and made a loop so it would wrap around the zip tie. wound it up and then begain my trials. FIrst trial I did the mouse trap car went fairly well, but there was too much strking so I whent and trimmed that up, and as the result of that it went faster but was more crooked, I didnt change anything and set it up for another trial and then it shot backwards which really confused me and i didnt figure out…
