The wheel is one of the first inventions people think of when they think about really early inventions. But, its first use would have looked nothing like the wheels we see today. For example, 5,000 years ago builders used logs like rollers to move the rocks they needed to build Stonehenge. It would be thousands of years before the logs were swapped out for the smaller, thinner wheels we see on bicycles today.
Join us on Thinker Thursdays to learn about people who have had great ideas, strange ideas, or really used their heads.
