Force Plate Used to Measure Forces Exerted by Screws

As part of Project Lead The Way engineering courses, Ken Kessenich at Pius XI High School in Milwaukee, WI started teaching a new unit that involves simple machines.

To measure the force exerted by screws, he uses the Force Plate and Vernier LabQuest.
