Program Description

Students investigate how machines work together along a 1930s to 1950s salmon canning line, including a demonstration of the working machines. Using their knowledge of simple and complex machines, groups of students will each explore one complex machine in the Herring Reduction Plant and will present their interpretation of the machine to the rest of the class.
