Joseph Morgese created the Seesaw


The seesaw lever is an example of a simple machine. The principle of a lever was discovered by Archimedes. He said that if he had a lever long enough and a place to stand on, he could move the earth. Levers have three parts: the pivot point or fulcrum and the two arms of the lever — the resistance arm and the effort arm.
