Certainly right ...
Just too bad that kids in school won't learn how to use Google or at least how to properly ask a question.
Copying the teachers question and pasting it here without even using a capital W only tells me one thing:
Lazy....

Steam is used for the same uses today as it was used 100 years ago, electric generation, heating, transportation, even cooking and other types of industrial process where direct heating is undesirable such as the production of cornstarch.

The technology using steam has improved so that the equipment is smaller and more compact making it easier to use in places where steam was impractical in the past. One addition to steam's uses is capturing geothermal energy, Iceland is the most advanced in this field.
