Steam Propulsion
For a period of time, steam has been the most widely used driving force for ships, trains, cars, factories and even electric generators. Different methods and equipment have been used to convert the steam pressure to mechanical movements.
In this project you will experiment a simple method of using steam power to propel a boat or car.
Material and instructions:
Research and display different methods of using steam power to move a vessel. Make models and possibly a working model of a steam driven car, boat or train.
Details of this project
Support and more information on this project is available for the members of A steam boat similar to the one pictured above is available at that can be used as display or as startup model.
