James Watt (1736-1819) Story of the Steam Engine

James Watt's improvement of the steam engine is credited for driving the Industrial Revolution.  Watt was a prolific inventor and is highly respected for the originality of his thinking. 

In 2014, I had prepared comprehensive biographies of five Scottish inventors/scientists.  These talks, lasting over 12 hours,  were given at Strathclyde Centre for LifeLong Learning and for my Science for All programme in East Kilbride.  

In the following I publish the slides of the talks as I feel that this will be of general interest .  Unfortunately the animations in several of the slides do not show in this blog - but may be viewed by going to the original references which are mentioned in most cases.
