With this affordable and hands-on hydropower kit, kids will have a blast building models and experimenting with them as they discover the science behind the power of water. This Thames & Kosmos water power kit provides a great introduction to studying alternative energy and environmental science!
With the materials and supplies inside this hydropower kit, kids will construct different devices and watermills, including:
- a water wheel (with a generator) in a small stream
- a hydropower sawmill
- a water tower
- a hammer mill
- a hydroelectric power station
- a giant turbine in a tidal power station
- a water fountain
- communicating vessels
- and more!
As curious learners build and experiment with their DIY building models, they will investigate the intriguing properties of water, discover how the different devices create useful energy out of water, and learn about key concepts like surface tension, water pressure, and converting water power to electricity. With this hydropower renewable energy science kit, they'll discover so many ways through which water can be used to perform different types of physical work!
This hydropower kit provides a practical and fun way to study renewable energy - without blowing your budget. It comes with an LED light, gears, tubing, and other snap-together plastic pieces; plus, its full-color, 32-page experiment manual offers illustrated instructions and interesting scientific information. All you have to provide are some common household items!
