  • OUR STORY STARTS WITH JAMES WATT, WHO WORKED AS AN INSTRUMENT MAKER IN THE UNIVERSITY OF GLASGOW.
  • WHILE WORKING THERE, WATT GREW AN INTEREST IN STEAM ENGINES. HE NOTICED HOW MUCH ENERGY THEY WERE WASTING AND WONDERED IF THERE WAS A WAY TO DO IT MORE EFFECTIVELY.

  • BUT... THERE WAS A PROBLEM. WATT WASN'T POOR, BUT HE CERTAINLY WASN'T SWIMMING IN CASH AND DUE TO HIS COSTLY INVENTION - WATT WAS RUNNING OUT OF MONEY.
