Science of Steamboats - Student Kit


What does displacement have to do with ships?

How do steam boilers work?

What is needed for clean combustion?

What makes a fuel efficient?

Why do ships sink?

The Science of Steamboats Student Kit includes six simple and fun experiments that answers these questions and more! Students literally get their hands wet. The students use control variables to demonstrate a variety of physics properties such as energy conversion, fuel efficiencies, and vessel hull displacement. Students are challenged with developing conclusions and applying the theories to real world solutions. Each experiment details setup, measuring, procedures, and facts about the demonstrated physics.
