Discover the marvels of engineering with the "Hot Air Stirling Engine Assembly" STEM Kit! This captivating product offers an immersive experience of the world of heat engines and mechanics. The Stirling engine, a closed-cycle regenerative heat engine, operates by cyclically compressing and expanding air or gas at different temperatures, resulting in the conversion of heat energy into mechanical work.
You can build your own Stirling engine is an enjoyable 30-minute endeavor, where carefully designed pieces fit together seamlessly. Once assembled, fill the tank with high-purity alcohol (not provided), preheat for 30 seconds, and give the flywheel a gentle turn. Prepare to be enchanted as the engine springs to life, running autonomously, reminiscent of its brilliance from 200 years ago.
This kit is very suitable for physics, mechanics, and engine enthusiasts in general. Through assembly and disassembly, one can best learn to understand the working principles of this ingenious engine. You can also find an article on my blog where I have written in more detail about the working principle of this engine.
