Museum of Science and Industry


Simple Machines

Create simple machines to trade distance for force in this challenge game!


The Ultimate "Twitch" Game

There are spare robot parts all over the Museum. It's the job of Twitch (up there, in red) to go and collect them. It won't be easy, and that's the problem: our adorable-but-lazy friend likes things easier. It's up to you and Twitch to use found objects to create simple machines, devices that will help him solve challenges with a minimum of force, collect the parts and stay out of trouble.
