In the Maker Shed: Gakken Stirling Engine Kit

This week I made the Gakken Stirling Engine Kit from the Maker Shed. It’s a really nice kit, in fact it’s my new favorite kit made by Gakken, although they are all awesome. I took a few pictures of the build so you could see how it went together. Check out for more information and pictures.


The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
