The Head Thrower! by Alexandros and Raphael

We, Alexandros and Raphael, worked on a complicated simple machine. We named it, “THE HEAD THROWER” because it ends up throwing a fake head in a bucket, so don’t be scared!
It is pretty small, but it took us more than 8 hours to build and it is a mixture of many simple machines. To build this machine we needed a lot of patience, because some times when we wanted to adjust something the whole thing fell and we had to start again from the beginning!
Have fun by watching the video of our head thrower!
We hope you like it!

Great job, boys! Very ingenious!
I think you might have started a new craze!
Can anyone identify any simple machines used here?

  1. Awwwww – I was going to post the OK GO video here, but you have beat me to it! This is one of my favorite bands…so let me post another link to another video of theirs which I am sure you will enjoy! Here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MejbOFk7H6c
    And let me tell you – it is my secret joy that all kids that I teach will grow up to be like the guys in this band – ENDLESSLY creative and very, very cool!

  2. Dear Alxandros and Raphael,
    I really liked your video because it was an awesome simple machine that is home made.
    I would love to know if you have made more simple machines.

    1. Dear Raneem,
      We have not YET made an other simple machine, but we will thanks to Mrs. Kynigou, who posted this video of OK GO, which gave us many good ideas!
      Your classmate,
      Raphael.
