Ball-bearings, a long-forgotten invention

A ball-bearing out of wooden parts and glass marbles shows you for what ball bearings are used (frictionless movement). The model can be taken home with the students.

In this workshop students can built their own little ball-bearing and playfully explore it. They find out for what it can be used and learn which physical principals lie behind it`s function.

The ball-bearing is an invention that is installed in so many machines, but hardly one really sees it. Eventhough Leonardo is known for inventing the ball-bearing, it hat it`s breakthrough in the industrial revolution.
