In Poland in the 50-70 years many scientific aids were produced. Among others section of the steam engine (photo of the model after renovation).

The Polish factories also produced: models of internal combustion engines, diesel engines, transmission models, Wankel engine models, etc.

Unfortunately, I'm not able to run all models at once. Cross-sectional models are manually driven (there are cranks at the back).

Thank you for the wonderful reactions!

I imagine that Polish children learned a great deal from having those engines in their classrooms. Do
the schools still teach practical subjects like that, or have they stopped, as they have in this country?

What a great collection you have.

It depends on the school and the teaching model.

In any case, many such models have been scrapped ... In schools, they teach more important things. Yes...
