Stirling engine kit – from Japan, now @ MAKE

Stirling engine kit – from Japan, now @ MAKE

Hey Makers, remember when MAKE visited Japan in late 2007? Well, we did and one of the goals was to bring back some amazing kits for our Maker store, and we did!

From Gakken’s Sophisticated Science Kit for Adults, the Stirling Engine kit is as majestic as a piece of art, and is used to understand the basics of thermodynamics. You can try three different experiments: the generator, the fan, and the car. The kit takes about three hours to assemble and no additional special tools are needed. Make is proud to be the exclusive distributor in North America for these brilliant kits – We only have a few of these, get one now! Stirling Engine kit & more kits from Gakken @ the Maker store.

    You can see the kit finished and in action on YouTube:

    Please put either a, quarter, a breadbox, or a VW Beetle in the picture so we can get a sense of scale.
