What can a Wooly Mammoth possibly know about machines? Ironically, this ancient beast is your animated guide to history's great inventors and their mechanical creations stemming back to 7000 B.C. Accompanied by comedian David Macaulay, the Wooly Mammoth explores over 150 simple and complex machines with 25 live action videos, 24 movies, and over 1,000 illustrations.
You'll discover the inner workings of inventions we often take for granted today. Each lesson is divided into four segments - "The A-Z of Machines", "Principles of Science", "History", and "Inventors" - for an all encompassing overview. Witty anecdotes and clever animation make learning a joy in this interactive software application.
