Gearing Up! Part 2 (Gear Ratios)

Students are exposed to how gears provide torque everyday. From shifting gears while riding a bike or learning to drive a car, gears make work easier.

During this lesson, students will define and identify what gear ratios are and how it can be use. They will use the different size spur gears available in the LEGO system to make working examples of different gear ratios.
