Project Description

Now you know how a diesel, petrol, four and two stroke engine works, could you use your knowledge to design a steam engine? The parts are mostly the same, but the working fluid and concepts change slightly. 

Write down your ideas along with some drawings. Then upload them to the class project area and compare your ideas to those of your classmates. I am 100% positive that if you work together on this project, you will design a rough steam engine very quickly.

Good luck!

P.S. If you want a specific answer to this project, simply go online and search for 'how a steam engine works'.
