Overview

With the Wind Power 2.0 Kit, you can build wind-powered generators to energize your electric vehicles and to charge rechargeable batteries! Each kit includes two styles of wind turbine blades, and a gearbox with three different gear ratios for experimenting. Determine how to make the best use of the wind by adjusting the angle and number of wind turbine blades. Use your wind-charged batteries to power the model vehicles you build. The six models include a glider, sail car, jet car, tractor, racecar, and tricycle.

First, assemble a wind turbine complete with electric generator, adjustable rotors, and wind speed indicator. Then, conduct more than 20 experiments with your wind turbine, including experiments with different numbers of rotor blades, different blade angles and profiles, different wind speeds, different gear ratios, and so on. Use the wind turbine to generate mechanical power to lift a heavy weight, power the vehicles you can make or generate electricity to light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery.

During the experiments, you will learn the physics of force and motion as it applies to wind power technology. Learn how to measure and calculate the different forces acting on the rotor blades by breaking them down into vectors. Discover how the sun makes the wind, providing us with an endless source of energy. Read about different types of wind turbines and windmills.

Wind Power Renewable Energy Kit is appropriate for children ages 8 and up.

Features & Benefits:

  • Build a working wind turbine
  • Harness mechanical energy to lift weights
  • Generate electricity to light an LED, power vehicles you can make, and charge a battery
  • Learn the physics of wind turbines
  • Discover how wind occurs and why it is such a promising energy source

Included: 133 building pieces and a 40-page color instruction book.

Batteries Required: AA Rechargeable (1)

Please note, rechargeable batteries are not included. You can find rechargeable batteries at drug stores, supermarkets or anywhere batteries are sold.
