A Candle powered boat is possible.

A candle powered boat was created in France in 1891.Can-Can-boot is a name for a candle powered boat that makes sound.A candle powered boat is powered by a heat engine.This small boiler is connected to an exhaust tube.When the candle is lit, water in the boiler starts to steam.The water in the exhaust tube is being pushed forward by the expanding steam.A vacuum is created when the steam bubble condenses and the water comes back in through the exhaust tube.When water is brought back into the boiler, it is heated and then steam is released.The distinctive "pop pop" noise that is created by the engine's cooling and flashing cycles is sometimes called a boat.

Step 1: Take the can.

Remove the cap and wash it.Along the sides, cut the bottom.The flat sheet will be created by this.You will trim it later if the sides are jagged.Roll the flat sheet backwards along the table to get rid of the curve the can has.

Step 2: To mark a 6 cm x 18 cm rectangle, you need to cut a straight line along one edge.

Cut out that piece of paper and trim the jagged edges.Don't cut yourself.The other pieces should be recycled.

Step 3: Carefully fold the aluminum sheet in half so that it doesn't tear.

You can fold it along a ruler if it helps.After you've done this, unfold.

Step 4: You can mark out three lines from the edges of the sheet.

Cut along the lines and trim the pieces.One half should be 9 cm and the other 4 cm.

Step 5: Take the Blu-Tac, warm it up and roll it into a long snake.

Line two edges of the smaller edge and flatten them out.

Step 6: Remember not to press too hard when you fold it in half again.

Press the metal.Line the top of the piece you just folded over with the other bead.

Step 7: You can crimp the metal with pliers by folding the edges.

Make sure you don't tear the metal.Small pliers can be used if possible.

Step 8: Remove the excess metal and leave a tab at the bottom.

It's not important for the edge to be straight, but it helps if it is.It should be 9 cm long and 4 cm wide.

Step 9: If you flatten it out, it will become a strip of 1 cm wide.

To flatten it, fold it in half.

Step 10: Wrap it around the first straw and then the second one.

Wrap the first one so it is completely covered twice, then add the second straw and continue to wrap the Blu-Tac around both straws.Make sure that the straws are secured with a good plug of Blu-Tac.

Step 11: Put the straw plug into the pocket of the boiler.

Add more and it will form a good seal.The Goldilocks principle is "not too much, not too little".

Step 12: The end of the tab is near the straws.

Pull the two outer pieces with the pliers.Add anything you need.

Step 13: The boiler is almost done.

Put it under water and blow it.If you see bubbles, squeeze the area with the pliers and try again.

Step 14: Place the empty carton in half.

The top should be left closed when you do this.The end that is not open should be used.If it has a bottle top, use the side without it.

Step 15: Take the other half of the carton and remove the top from it.

Cut out any Windows and decorate them.Attach the 'cabin' to the boat with glue, tape, or a combination of the two.

Step 16: Cut a small hole to hold the two straws.

It might be easier to cut this part with a knife.To make the edges smooth, twist the knife around in the hole.

Step 17: The boat is done.

Step 18: Place the straws through the hole and tape the long part to the bottom.

Extras that extend past the end of the boat should be cut off.

Step 19: Plug up the hole with a piece of tape.

Once you have taped the straws to the bottom, you can cover the hole on both sides.To find out if the boat is waterproof, quickly test it.If not, add more.

Step 20: Stick to the cabin.

Attach it with tape or glue.The cabin and boat are complete.

Step 21: Take one straw and blow it hard until water comes out of the other straw to prep the boat.

Water can be sucked into your mouth.Attach the straw to the boat.

Step 22: The candle should be put in the boat.

After a few moments, the boat will move forward in the water and make a popping sound.

Step 23: It's done.
