Activities, Workshops & Incursions For School Melbourne

Push/Pull and Forces Incursions

Why do we teach children about pushes and pulls? Because everything is determined by the forces which act upon us. All forces push or pull!

We explore Magnets and their use as non-contact forces to push or pull on objects. How Gravity, a non-contact force, pulls us to the ground. How Friction uses contact forces to allow us to push or pull on objects.

Below are just a couple of examples of the Push/Pull and Forces activities we bring out to schools

  • Children absolutely love our Push/Pull Machine. Thousands of delightful screams have told us that gravity can be fun. Pushing and pulling can be tiring as children fly up and down on this mini version of a carnival ride when they use the push pull machine.
  • Designed around the action of a seesaw railway wagon, this machine is a visual interaction of simple machines and pneumatics. It’s made by us and is unique to Taskworks. Want to have a go as a teacher? We guarantee you’ll love it as well.
