Event Description

The ways we have powered our lives has changed. Industries like mills and farming use to be powered by people, animals, and even natural elements like water. During the industrial revolution this all changed, and we started to use fuel like coal and steam to power new technologies like engines. 

Use our model engine and construction kits to build all kinds of different machines which have been used throughout history to generate power and harness energy. 

Can you invent a new machine to power the future?
