A machine with four paddles for raising water from a pool to a higher place by an animal

This device is a model of Al Jazari's machine with an animal with four paddles for raising water from a pool to a higher place. This device design, which has an educational design perspective, is built in a sturdy fashion so the students can interact with the device. It is also designed to be a transparent structure to show the inner workings of the device so that the students can observe the mechanism in action and understand the methodology. In this device, the lever on the top of the animal is rotated by hand and the force balances in mechanical systems are considered. In addition, the operation of the pistons in four-cylinder engines can be recalled in our minds. The water utilized is recycled in the same pool. In this way, the device functions by itself in a closed system without getting connected to the plumbing system of the home with the same water.
