Archimedes Facts for Kids

Fun Facts about Archimedes for Kids. King Hiero called upon Archimedes to design war machines to defend the country against the Romans who were intent on invading. Archimedes is said to have invented the catapult, which could hurl 500 pound boulders at the enemy. He also invented giant claws that could lift warships out of the ocean and crush them.

Archimedes Screw Generators

Archimedes screw systems are run of river systems and therefore the timing and variation of water flows is unaffected. Archimedes screw systems do not attempt to "store up" water in a reservoir. Archimedes screw systems produce hydropower cost effectively. This means that small dams/weirs are now useful valuable assets once again as they

Archimede Screw Turbines. Hydrodynamic Screws. An idea from Greek antiquity was the source of inspiration for this technology. Archimedean screws are an old idea (attributed to Archimedes of Syracuse in the 3rd Century BC), but until recently – within the past 10 years, they have always been used to pump water uphill. The hydrodynamic screw turns that principle around and uses the position
