First Shop Science Project

My friend Jake cam over with his Dad on Sunday and we worked together to make a steam turbine as a science project.  Jake's design was based on a published design in the May 1960 issue of Mechanix Illustrated.  The original article can be found on Scribd at this link:

After testing on the kitchen stove and making a few small adjustments the turbine worked very well.  Here is a picture of Jake's turbine showing the various parts.

Here is a picture of the young inventor with his completed turbine after testing.
