Tesla Turbine from Old Hard Drives and Minimal Tools
This page provides step by step instructions on building a Tesla turbine from two old computer hard disk drives using basic hand tools and a pillar drill. No metal lathe or other expensive fabrication machinery is...
Go Go Gadget: Invent a Machine
Students study the concepts of force, motion, and work as they analyze simple machines. They study the simple machines in complex machines, and track the transfer of force from input (effort) to output (work). Students...
Teaching About Energy: Power of a Student
This student activity is designed to help students understand the concept of power. The energy required to climb stairs, and the rate at which students can do this, illustrates this concept. The energy requirements for...
Teaching About Energy: Designing a Roller Coaster
This student activity is designed to explore the concept of work. Using inclined planes with different slopes, students are lead to discover the invariance of force times distance for objects starting at the same...
