Going For A Spin - Making a Model Steam Turbine

Type of Resource



Students explore how various energy sources can be used to cause a turbine to rotate and then generate electricity with a magnet.

Performance Expectations

HS-PS3-3   Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy.

MS-ETS1-1   Define the criteria and constraints of a design problem with sufficient precision to ensure a successful solution, taking into account relevant scientific principles and potential impacts on people and the natural environment that may limit possible solutions
