A Listing of Known Steam Schools for 2002


| January/February 2002



Students at the 2000 steam school

Students at the 2000 steam school at The University of Rollag gather around a cutaway boiler for an explanation and demonstration of steam in preparation for hands on experience.

Editor's note: There can be no doubt that the events in Medina, Ohio, of July 29, 2001 have engendered a deepening interest in steam education. With that in mind, we have attempted to compile a list of known steam schools or classes that are being offered during 2002. Many of these classes are already full, but in the interest of showing what is available, and perhaps in the process encouraging further participation, we are listing all the schools of which we presently know. If you know of a school that is not listed here, please contact us here at Iron-Men Album, 1503 SW 42nd St., Topeka, KS 66609-1265, (785) 274-4379, ore-mail: rbackus@ogdenpubs.com
