CLEAN ENERGY - Low Temperature Working Stirling Engine (8+)
One engine you may have heard a lot about recently is the Stirling Engine, which is a little bit like a steam engine that uses no steam! Instead, it heats, cools, and recycles the same air or gas over and over again to produce useful power that can drive a machine. Teamed up with solar power and other new technologies, Stirling engines sound like cutting-edge technology, but they've actually been around since 1816.
Take a closer look at how they work with this amazing scale model!
