|Engaging reading materials and hands-on construction demonstrate how a Stirling engine kit can be used in the classroom to assist in teaching important chemistry and physics concepts. Learning the history and science behind the development and creation of the very first Stirling engine will make it easier for little mechanics when they build their own, because they will already have a general understanding of how the engines work and what very practical purposes they can serve today. Children will enjoy the construction challenge as they work to complete their engines and sharpen their problem solving skills throughout the building process. Assembling this environmentally friendly technology will teach your children about different sources of alternative energy and the growing demand to rely less on fossil fuels. External combustion engines, like the Stirling convert heat energy into mechanical work, and typically harness energy from the sun, farm waste, and other innovative sources of simple, clean, and efficient energy technologies. Putting together a real Stirling engine that actually works will inspire any young scientist to keep on discovering more energy efficient ideas!|
