Stirling Engine Project


Adapted from Jim Larson’s Quick & Easy Stirling Engine



An outcome of this class is that you build something and understand how it works.
  • I want you to build something challenging that requires time, effort, hard work, and focus but also failure and iteration. Failure and iteration are an important part of the scientific and engineering process. When physicists and engineers build something, it rarely works the first time, so the challenge is to identify and solve the problem using critical, scientific reasoning.
  • So the goal of this project is to have a challenging but rewarding experience of building something yourself and understanding how it works. 
  • I hope it feels like this.

Create a blog and document each step with at least one photo and, if necessary, any important notes about the process, such as the following:

  • What challenges did you encounter?

  • How did you solve them?

Post a video of your running engine on your blog.



Here's how the project will be assessed.
