For centuries, man has harnessed the power of water to grind grain, saw timber, forge metal, and do many other things faster and better than human power alone. In the program STEAM: Harnessing the Power of Water, we will explore the development and uses of steam power on the rivers, the rails, in agriculture, and in industry. We will see how the most common steam engines operated, turning water into power. We will also explore the role of steam power in the Industrial Revolution, especially its widespread use after the Civil War. From stationary engines to tractors, steam powered the machines that made America an industrial and agricultural giant.
