We were delighted to welcome Dr Adam Feldman, Senior Lecturer in Renewable Energy, from the University of Exeter to Cornwall School of Maths and Sciences for the latest academic lecture. The lecture was well attended by CSMS students and members of the Scholars’ Community, a community for students in Years 7-11 in any school in Cornwall.

His talk was filled with practical demonstrations of thermodynamics and he explained how the Stirling Engine, a contemporary of the steam engine made redundant by the rise of the internal combustion engine, may be about to make a comeback.

Dr Feldman’s lecture was engaging and a number of the audience stayed behind to see a working model of the Stirling Engine up close.

We would like to thank Dr Feldman for his time and hope to see him again at CSMS.
