Wonderful Water Wheels

 We saw some Wonderful Water Wheels work today. This was a Home Learning project that both children and adults enjoyed.

water wheel is a hydropower system; a machine for extracting power from the flow of water. Water wheels and hydropower was widely used in the Middle Ages, powering most industry in Europe, along with the windmill. The most common use of the water wheel was to mill flour in gristmills, but other uses included foundry work and machining, and pounding linen for use in paper.
