Water wheels have been
used in the past to run other machineries such as mills,
textile machines, lathes, presses and forges (automatic
hammers). A combination of wheels, axles and belts were
used to transfer mechanical forces from the wheel to the
machines. Water wheels spin by the force of water. Water
wheels can be constructed using different material and
in many different sizes (your choice).
In this project you will make
a paper or cardboard model of a water wheel. This is a display
project. You will not do any additional experiments with the
water wheel that you make. Please note that display projects
will not have question, hypothesis, experiment and graph.
