OPITEC PlusLine Heat Engine
The thermal engine is based on a Christmas pyramid. The building does not require any special craftsmanship and encourages competence-oriented work in the classroom. The students build a functioning thermal engine and then develop their own solution strategies to optimize the turning speed. The solutions and goals are independently documented by students. This promotes creativity and craftsmanship. Attempts bring the students to acquire knowledge. Physical simple laws are tested, applied and reflected in practice.
