Simple Machines & Assembly Line (Grade 3 & 4: Social Studies & Science)
Think about how many cars you see on the road every day. Were Calgary’s roads always so crowded? Not at all.

Learn all about the time-saving, cost-reducing manufacturing process called the assembly line in this interactive program. Visit our Lower Showroom and Husky Station to find out more about these mass-produced cars and the conglomeration of simple machines that make them tick.

Across the Sea of Grass (Grade 4 & 5: Social Studies)
