概要

Stirling engine is an engine that performs using temperature difference, not using explosive power of fuel. So it can run silently in comparison with usual combustion engine, like gasoline engine. And it can use any type of heat source ; solar energy, ocean thermal energy, geothermal energy, etc. In addition to these merits, this engine has such simplicity that even students could make it in their fashion. The authors use this engine to foster creative designing talent by letting students for themselves think out an idea, design it, produce parts, assemble them, and move the work. "Stirling techno-rally," a race where stirling-engine-powered machines run, and this year it took the 11^<th>, is made use of to maintain students' motivation.
