If you've seen the film Ponyo (or if you grew up in Asia) you may have seen a sort of toy boat powered by a very simple steam engine. They work by having a very simple boiler powered by a candle in which water is turned to steam. I came across lovely plans for building such a boat from a drink can and a milk carton from Science Toy Maker. Finally, I painted it using a spray silver paint that was polystyrene safe and inserted the engine. If you enjoyed this blog post, you might enjoy my travel book for people interested in science and technology: The Geek Atlas. With this unique traveler's guide, you'll learn about 128 destinations around the world where discoveries in science, mathematics, or technology occurred or is happening now. You can make the body of the boat with a recycled, cut-up milk or juice carton, which is easy to cut, water-proof and paintable (although mine are not painted here). Gabriel from California sent me this wonderful picture of his daughter and her science fair project about pop pop boats.
