Moving mechanically towards less effort

Answer this question: how do you move a large amount of weight without pulling a muscle? Hosted by the Musée des sciences in Geneva, the bi-lingual Roulez les mécaniques exhibition is engaging and educational. Since ancient times, humankind has developed a range of techniques for moving and carrying heavy loads. Here, families are given the chance to roll up their sleeves and learn simple mechanical movements behind moving large amounts of weight with minimal effort.
