Welcome to Science Buddies and thanks for your question. I would start by finding out as much about the original design as I could. If you look up the abstract for the original designers science fair entry, you will find a few words about issues he had with his design. You may be able to identify something you'd like to work on and improve. You can find the abstract here: http://www.usc.edu/CSSF/History/2009/Projects/S0217.pdf
This seems like a very technical challenge. You will need to understand phase changes and how to apply that to the placement and movement of a mechanical piston...just to get you started.
