Description

We make steam every morning while preparing our morning coffee. But how can it be used to move this massive machine? In this episode, we explore how engineers designed steam engines to turn fire, water, and steam into tremendous amounts of force.

This video series is the winning project of the Europeana STEM challenge 2019 and was awarded funding for its production. Im grateful to the Europeana team for support in creating this series and providing invaluable educational resources.
